Peter Owen Prior

Peter Prior sadly died on 5 July 2013.  His family held a Memorial Service for him in September at his old college, Jesus College, Cambridge.  One of the tributes was given by Colin Thomas, who first met Peter in September 1943 when they both started in Form 1 at Eltham College.

Peter had very happy memories of his time at Eltham.  He was Head Boy in 1952 and a successful sportsman, as well as taking part in various plays and musical productions. Peter can be seen in the photo of the Elthamians homepage in the Eltham College 'Captains of Sport' at a Fifty Year Reunion which he attended several years ago. Peter's cousin David attended Eltham College between 1957 and 1964, and his son Aidan became a second generation pupil when he also attended Eltham College between 1971 and 1981.
