Gobo Mills - April 1959
Gobo Mills (Applied Mathematics a.k.a. Mechanics) with Robert ‘Jacko’ Jackson (left) and Lindsey Pratt (right). Gobo was one of those people who could make Coefficients of Restitution really interesting. He was also more than willing to tell us of his war-time experiences as an RAF navigator. Gobo was one of the few outstanding teachers at Farnborough Grammar during the fifties which seemed to be unusually blessed with strange individuals. His main failing was ill-fitting false teeth which made sitting in the front row of his class a risky business; hence his nickname.

More photos : Gobo in 1936. On holiday in 1963.
Gobo retired in 1962.
