Comments: I followed my two brothers, Fred Ede and Jim Ede, and got very used to being asked "why can't you do xxxxx like your brother?"!
I only have happy memories of my years at Godalming Grammar - and still dine out on my daily journey from darkest Shottermill by foot, bus, train and I'm sure I remember at least a two mile walk from the station and up Holloway Hill!
