Robert Flack

From the General Botha Old Boys Association Muster List

Bobby Flack came to the General Botha from Observatory Boys’ High School and, after a few months, suffered a leg injury which involved lengthy treatment. He therefore “stood down” until the following year, when he rejoined as one of the juniors.At the end of his time at the “Botha”, he went away to sea in Union Castle.

Unsubstantiated rumour has it that he then left to serve in Thesen’s. However, what is known that somewhere along the line he joined the Royal Air Force and made his career in its photographic section.

On retirement he may (or may not) have worked in the photographic section of one of the large libraries in Cape Town, before returning to the UK.

Robert is now living in retirement in London, from where he is maintaining a stony silence.
