Leonard Hinton (1909 - 2002)

 

We learned with great sadness that Leonard died on 4th August 2002, just three days before his 93rd birthday. He attended the school from 1920 to 1927 and always retained a keen interest in the Old Camdenians Club and it's support for the School students. He was, until quite recently, a regular at the Annual Dinner and continued to correspond even after he was no longer able to attend. Indeed, his last letter in November 2001 mentioned having found some old photographs, which he felt would be of interest for our archives.

Len served in India during WW2 rising rapidly from private to Captain. he worked mainly in the North of England and the Midlands and on retiring became a stalwart of the local British Legion. He was a cricket fanatic and played for his village side, Belbroughton, Worcs, on whose grounds his ashes are scattered. To his wife, Mary, and his family, we extend our deepest sympathy.
