Mr Pilcher was my PE teacher at BGS in the late 60's and taught me more life skills than any book or softly spoken relative. His 'firm but fair' attitude was a model for life. About 20 years ago I bumped into him in my dentists waiting room, hello Ian how are you ? Hello Sir I am fine thank you. Sums up the man, he remembered my name after all those years and I still called him Sir. A mark of respect thoroughly deserved. I guess his lasting legacy was teaching us that a cover drive into the PE storage area was worth double the runs for a ball struck elsewhere. I carried that with me playing cricket until the age of 60. Thank you Mr Pilcher, RIP.

Although a teacher at BGS and later Lord Grey, I being female was not directly taught by Mr Pilcher. But as Philip Pilcher, I knew him as a true local lad. He was at school with my mother and uncles. He commanded a lot of respect in school and seemed to have so much energy and intuition regarding pupils, but always fair.

What a gentleman. Phil taught me as a student, he was motivating and encouraging ensuring that I would reach my potential. He often would give me a lift home following school rugby matches. During the journeys he would use his keen language skills to correct my spoken language ensuring I said could have and not could of! Later Phil became a neighbour, grandfather of a pupil I taught, and a friend. He supported our village school offering help at the sports days. We would often chat while he was working at the front of his bungalow. As we grew older together and reflected where we were in life he would say we spend the first third of our life preparing for work, the second third at work and the last third enjoying life. Sadly missed. RIP Phil.

Philip Pilcher was the man who taught me, and many others, what the word 'fair' really means and demonstrated it every day in his teaching. He stands out. The world would be a better place had there been more like him. Maurice McElroy
