Ian Harcombe (SH 51-56).

Jim Harcombe (SH 50-55), Ian’s brother, writes:

Ian and I were very great friends throughout his life. He was only fifteen months younger than I and we grew up together through our education. We both went to a boarding preparatory school in Cheshire followed by public school at St Bees.

After Ian retired and after his wife had died, he spent two or three months each year with us in Hout Bay during the British winters. This continued until he contracted Parkinson’s disease. It was this awful disease that caused his early death.
