Ron Edwards still treasures a copy of a handwritten reference (right) supplied by the recently retired Taylor Dyson. Dated Dec 5th 1945, it reads:
"I write on behalf of Mr R Edwards with every confidence and pleasure.
"He passed through Almondbury Grammar School, Huddersfield during my Headmastership and proved himself an outstanding student and leader.
"He spent several years in Form VI specialising in Maths and Science and after taking the higher School Certificate went on to Leeds University. Others will be able to speak of his University Career with more authority but I have watched his development with great interest.
"At school his character stood very high and he was deservedly popular with masters and boys alike. He served the school well as Prefect and House Captain and took a prominent part in all our activities.
"I recommend him completely and wish him well."
