Ted Harrison was a very popular teacher at Slim School Malaya, the same school I attended, he was there in the 1950s so I was never taught by him but I heard all about him from others and he is featured on the Slim School Malaya website there are many photos and reports of his time in Malaya.
I know there are a few of you bloggers that live in that part of the world and his artwork is amazing, inspired by his time in Malaya, according to reports.

Little story about Lance Percival, RIP, who in my mind was a great comedian.
He visited my school in the Cameron Highlands in what was Malaya, Slim School, as part of the forces entertainment tour, must have been 1963/64. He was so funny and after the concert we were all asked to write an essay on what we thought. I won and received two books, Dictionary of Flowers and Peter And Jane in Brittany...still got both. When I have worked out how to photo and share I will post.
Another memory too, whilst was at PRS I sent in a request for 'If you like beetroot I will be true to you' it was played on the Saturday morning show...cannot remember details but it was sung by Lance P.
