Frank was an outstanding engineer who was recruited from Liverpool University by CP Snow
to serve on Solly Zuckerman's scientific advisory group to the British Government in WWII.
But my acquaintance with him was through the Wessex Branch of the International Wine and Food Society, which he co-founded in 1984. He was a senior manager with Proctor and Gamble and had worked all over the world. Notably, in Brussels he had previously founded an IWFS branch with other P&G managers, so when they all retired to Dorset what could be more natural than to set up our very successful branch?
Frank had an encyclopaedic knowledge of good wines and always wanted to try new and exciting dishes. He would not hold back if he thought they were not up to scratch. He was forthright to a T in his views on British society and was truly apolitical, but at heart he was as patriotic as any Scouser.
He will be sadly missed as a colleague and great friend.
David Packer, Chairman, Wessex Branch, International Wine & Food Society.
