Roy Thomas Ashwell, born 1927, English master from 1961 to 1964

I've been updating the list of RGS Masters and in the process stumbled on quite a bit of information about Roy Thomas Ashwell (born 1927), who taught English at the RGS and ran the school library from 1961 to 1964. Aged 88, he is still writing poetry, as he has done for 60+ years, and getting it published. He's lived a very interesting life.

Here's the entry I have put in the Masters list:

[BA,] London and Exeter. Left RGS to be Senior English Master at Harlow. Previous to teaching, he had been an admin officer in Nigeria and Cameroon. Attended Harrow Wield School. In more recent years, an educational consultant and company director. Has written poetry for 60+ years. Roy Ashwell's websiteSome photos of him at different times in his lifePoems 2014.
