Gobo Mills - April 1959
Gobo Mills (Applied Mathematics a.k.a. Mechanics) with Robert Jacko Jackson (left) and Lindsey
Pratt (right). Gobo was one of those people who could make Coefficients of Restitution really
interesting. He was also more than willing to tell us of his war-time experiences as an RAF
navigator. Gobo was one of the few outstanding teachers at Farnborough Grammar during the fifties
which seemed to be unusually blessed with strange individuals. His main failing was
ill-fitting false teeth which made sitting in the front row of his class a risky business; hence his nickname.
