Technical Drawing was taught by Mr Parr-Whalley (Pw), a young teacher with fair hair and beard. He was very tolerant, especially of the fact that in his entire class I was the only one who had no idea what I was doing. He taught me how to do ‘exploded’ drawings and third angle elevation drawings, which were the only respect in which I was ahead of the class when I began my Design Technology course on returning to the UK.
In these classes – which were one of the two optional classes and which were therefore not ones in which we were taught in our form groups – I was sat next to a tall boy with wild blond hair named Craig Tremeer. I have no idea why they picked him to inflict me upon and. although we never became close, we got on well enough and he was also a great help to me in this alien subject.
