Mr Simpson came to the school to take P.T. in the evenings. He would then stay the night as duty officer. He was a Welshman and was a severe disciplinarian. He would line you up and inspect your PT kit, if it was not up to his standard he would have you climbing the ropes or doing press ups. You had to run at the double at all times during his session.

If your kit was tip top he would let the best two boys leave the session early for their shower. Out of his hearing he was known as Taffy. He called all his trainees "BOY"

His full time job was a teacher at Astor Secondary School. He taught PT and Religious knowledge.

I encountered him first at Astor then on leaving, at the PWSTS. 1963 to 1964.
