- Fred Marquis - Lord Woolton -

Fred Marquis attended the Ardwick Higher Grade School around 1900.  Some 60 years later I was asked to accompany Donald Woodhead to his memorial service at Manchester Cathedral.  I was selected along with one or two other prefects basically on the grounds that I was in uniform.  I had no idea who Fred Marquis was even in his latest persona as Lord Woolton.  I do remember that afterwards, perhaps as a reward, Don took us for tea at Lewis's.
