Out on the razzle…


Newly knighted Sir “just call me” John Hood is a past Vice Chancellor of Oxford University, the current chairman of the Rhodes Trust and a Westlaker.

Which is what we alumni of Westlake Boys High School (Auckland, NZ) call ourselves.

The current headmaster, David Ferguson, invited a bunch of UK (the rest) and German (me) based Westlakers to a dinner hosted by Sir…er…John in Rhodes House in Oxford a while back.

I overlapped Tony Evans in the early 1960s, John overlapped me in mid 1960s and the age spread pretty much covered the school’s 50 year history.

Excellent evening.
