Max Lee MBE on Ron Fellman

Since posting the article below I have received the following details from Maxie:

The group photo, from the left, shows "T", Ron Fellman, Bernard Fellerman, Joe Monger, Max Lea, Leslie Addison & Ralph Young. The "Trio" photo shows Leslie, Ron & Bernard and the 2nd snap shows Ron at Oxford & St.Georges. The last snap shows "T" & Ron.

Maxie goes on to write as follows:

Ron was Club Leader at the Virginia Rd School premises approximately 1950-1956 when we came under the GLC.

He was a very quiet man and well respected both by the management committee and the boys who came under his wing. He organised camps at Shackleford and Badger Hall, hikes and holidays abroad and kept things going very efficiently until his departure to Birmingham when David Greenhalgh (Weasel) took over from him

Apart from being Club Leader, he was a personal friend to all the other managers which at the time included Leslie Addinson, Ralph Young and myself.

He was badly missed when he first moved to Birmingham and now he will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

He was indeed a very lovely man.

Max Lea MBE
