williamhenryparkerOn behalf of his family, I regret to have to let you know, that our father, William Henry Parker (Bill), passed away on Thursday 27th November 2014 in Nambour District Hospital, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. His age was 90 years and one month.

He greatly enjoyed keeping up to date with the latest happenings at Kingham Hill and knew much about its history. He regularly communicated, by email or via Skype, with a number of his former fellow students and staff of Kingham Hill.

He made a number of valuable contributions to the KH website over the years, sharing photos and stories and posting documents, some of which reflected the poignancy of very sad moments he experienced while in the navy during World War 2, when far, far from home.

Bradford 1939 - 1945

Bill "Willie" Strupp died at his home in Toronto on May 13th 2008 at the age of eighty.  Bill arrived at KHS in 1939, the second of seven refugees to join us from pre-war Germany. 

He was a Bradford boy who showed academic promise. He left The Hill in 1944 and, after looking into several possibilities, settled for life as a pilot in the RAF.
