He will be sadly missed by his family, friends and those who knew him from the School.

We are conscious that some people from the time when Malcolm was at the School may not be in contact with us and we would ask if you could pass on this information to those that you know.

As is the usual practice, we would like to place an obituary for Malcolm in the 2023-24 OI Journal and would be very grateful for any stories or memories you may wish to share which we could put together for the publication. Please address any contributions to oldipswichians@ipswich.school.

I am so sorry to hear that Malcolm has passed, and I send my condolences to his family and friends.

Malcolm and I joined the Prep School together in September 1949 and saw our learning right through to the end of our secondary education.  He was a good friend and we got together many times outside of school time.  My abiding memory of him was while he was working in South Africa at the same time as I was also out there!  We made contact and I drove from Cape Town to Durban to meet up with him for a few days over Christmas 1967 – it was so hot and humid that all we could manage for Christmas Lunch was a ham sandwich and a beer on Durban beach!  It was great to see him again during our overseas careers.

Richard Wadwell (OI 1949-60)
