    Peter was a wonderful, inspirational teacher. I was one of his pupils at Keighley Boy’s Grammar School from 1965 to 1972 where he taught Geography and was later Head of 6th form. Years after I had left I happened to see him on the train and he still remembered me, a testament to him, not me. Later he moved to live near me in Embsay and it was lovely to be reacquainted with him. I remember seeing an unusual rainbow ‘in the sky’ and asked him if he could explain it, he laughed and said unfortunately he couldn’t because he hadn’t seen it! Condolences to Peter’s family, Tim Falkingham
