During my brief trip to Cornwall last week, I visited my old Inny History Master of the years 3B and 4B - Wally Edge and his wife Rosemary, at their home near Hayle - close to Land's End.
Both Wally and his wife look fit and well, though Wally says his legs give him problems at times. He is now 86 years old and was absolutely thrilled to see me - not me personally - but me as a representative of those he taught from his years spent at the Inny.
We chatted for about an hour and a half about ourselves, our memories of the Inny, and about various Inny people we had come into contact with since leaving - and had a glass of Sherry. His memory is still very good. It was a very pleasant visit indeed. Rosemary was out at a Ladies Social meeting when I arrived, but returned home about half an hour later.
Wally said he felt so pleased that students from the Inny times still remembered him ------ I explained that he was often mentioned in our Liobian discussions about the school.
I phoned him briefly yesterday evening to check something. He said that following my leaving them they had talked together about my visit, and that they really felt very thrilled and proud that someone from those days would remember him and come all that way to see him. It made me feel really good.
My visit was prompted by a suggestion from Billy Morton that I might be able to go there when down in Cornwall
Thank you Billy M.
