Theatre.

Derek was a regular at plays produced by 'The West of England Theatre Company' in Exmouth.

'I still treasure a wad of programmes of the dear old "W of E", starting with the 1949 season, when I first came here. "Pink String & Sealing Wax" was the first I seem to have seen.' - Derek's letter to Peter Burdon 13th August 1988. Thanks to Peter's son, Steve Burdon.

Sports.

'I used to play bowls in the local league at the "Queen & Castle" at Kenilworth [team: Avon Electric]. I expect that lovely grass has long been a car park.' - Derek's letter to Peter Burdon 13th August 1988. Thanks to Peter's son, Steve Burdon.

It appears that Derek was also a member of a miniature rifle club.

Derek featured in various newspaper reports (click to enlarge).

'He was 6ft 3" when he'd finished going upwards. We always got on very happily. He was very kind and he didn't bully me, because if you're that much taller and older than your sister, you can really have a go.' - Joan Enock.
