It is with great sadness that I pass on the news that at the age of 91, Old Elthamian Gerald Moore died on the 24th March, peacefully at home in Devon.

A child actor in films such as Medal for the General (1944) alongside Petula Clark, he went on to study medicine, in London. After qualification he went to Dublin to take a further degree in Dentistry before ultimately having a surgery on Harley Street as an oral surgeon.

Amazing, isn’t it.  On 25th April 2018 Leonard Lovelock, who was at Eltham College in the 1930s, celebrated his 100th birthday and Simon, Penny and Mark from the Development team went to his house in Eltham to congratulate him and admire his card from the Queen. 

He is fit and well, looks a lot younger and it was lucky we caught him as he was off to Canada the following week to visit his son David, who is a mere 73. Leonard is pictured with his card from the Queen and his form photo when he was in the Sixth Form.
