Example text

Therefore, one had to organize oneself for this, and that meant private study and studying together, for many of us were students. My first experience of teaching goes back to this camp in Canada on Abraham's Plains, and even today I occasionally meet people who say they had their best lessons in mathematics from me in Canada. The opportunity to give lectures to groups, usually not very large, of able young people had a distinct influence on my style and method of lecturing. While I vaguely recall helping my sister when I was perhaps 10 or 11 to deal with her school mathematics, though she was four years ahead of me at school, I have no ρ articular recollection of doing much with my friends when I was at school, largely I think because what interested me in mathematics was then miles ahead of the work we were doing at the school.

He, who was four years older than I, was already married with a child (and a second one on the way before very long) and they had a house near Nutbourne, while Fred was now stationed at Witley. Rather than go through the trauma of selling and buying houses he spent much of the week with us and commuted weekly. In a three-bedroomed house it was not difficult for Fred to have one bedroom, Tommy another and me the third. I acquired my first taste there for domestic engineering and for cooking, under Tommy's guidance, but he and I and Fred, when he was with us, spent all our time discussing scientific questions.

In all this collapse we were greatly heartened by the prolonged American stand in the Bataan Peninsula, and the charismatic aura of General Douglas McArthur originated in those days. The miserable episode of the escape of the German warships through the Channel in mid-February 1942 added to the general gloom. Yet even in those days I had no doubt of the eventual outcome of the war, but it was impossible to see how this would be achieved. Of course we placed great faith in the United States, but also in British strength, and the persistent success in preventing the fall of Malta in the Mediterranean, coupled with the build-up of the RAF gave us great heart.
