When they take that final ride across the drawbridge they will be missed, and those whose lives have been affected by them may shed a tear. Some however share the manly qualities that maketh the Hero and send him on his way with an Honour that befits all.
So it was for a Teacher at Palmerston North High School in Wellington, New Zealand.
He taught the boys for 30 years. Maths and Gym. The boys showed their love and respect.
A fine manner of Salute.
Few outside his orbit knew of him. His boys did. They are on their way to becoming men like him.
He is Honoured in the Tavern.
Raise your cups.
