I recall one such master called Brian Rattray who held an end of term party for some invited guests in his flat. Things must have got rather boisterous as some time after midnight the dorm door opened and a very smelly gorgonzola cheese was hurled down the walkway between the bunks.
The clamour of female voices could be heard emanating from the same party so clearly a good time was had by all.
Another staff member I remember was an Irishman called David Whaley. He was a very nice man with a pleasant lilt and a great singing voice.
He formed an Irish Folk group with two students, the Green brothers, and even featured on a folksinging LP record, Folk Concert Down Under, put out in the early 1970's by HMV.Bob McCaw remembers Dave as a real character, as do I.
Dave used to teach 6th Physics with in a temporary lab down in the Tech block. In those days there were lots of films staff could show students, and one day, after a late night in pursuit of his present wife, Dave fell asleep while the film was playing.
The students, soon aware of the potential of the situation, left the film room with hardly a sound.
Some time later Dave woke to the sound of the end of the reel flapping around as the projector was still working and all students had disappeared!
He recounted the story to Bob at the time as he was found wandering around trying to find his students.
It was a bashful Dave who had to confront his class next day – and they didn't want to see the film again.
