Leonard Victor Fost (1935-42)


Norman wrote to me on 16th September 1998 with the sad news of the death of his brother,

Leonard Victor Fost. Leonard is likely to be remembered by his contemporaries as a lively character, School captain, and eventually the winner of a languages scholarship to St. Edmund's Hall, Oxford.

After a 'wartime' short course he became a pilot in the Fleet Air Arm and fortunately survived the war. following demobilisation he finished his degree in Russian at Oxford before taking up a distinguished career in the Prison Service.

Although not an active Old Camdenian, he always spoke fondly of his time at Holloway School. he died peacefully, of multiple maladies, at his home in Sussex in June this year.

He leaves a wife, two sons and two daughters and is much missed by friends and relatives. (NF)
