Reginald Sawdon was one of Mrs Angus's two brothers, who lived at the school throughout its existence until he died suddenly of a heart attack on the 12th of June 1967 (according to the 1967 Stouts Hill Magazine).
He was almost completely deaf and dumb, and David remembers that masters used to communicate with him using sign language.
David also remembers that he was very fond of his red motorcycle (around 1950), although later on he acquired a car and seems to have been equally fond of that.
Julian says he was said to have made the two model battleships that were displayed in glass cases outside the blue dining room.
Unfortunately I seem to have no memory of him. Sigh. My memory is like a colander.
