Mr Wodehouse was the careers master and I remember visiting him at his home in 1957. I had just finished my National Service and realised that I didn't want to continue in the same job for the rest of my life. He sat me down and after I had explained the situation he said, "What would you like to do"? I probably mumbled something about not being sure. He asked me if I was good at mathematics, so I lied through my teeth. He he picked the phone up and spoke to the City Engineer and asked if he had an opening for a bright young man. I started work at the Guildhall the next Monday and started an enjoyable life in Civil Engineering.
Times have changed?
