Dykers Hill (known to many OJ’s as Tokio) died on 22 October 1996 at the age of 77.
He was the only son of the Chief of Police of British Guiana, but he never returned there after he started at Hurst, and he rarely saw his parents. At Hurst he was Captain of the School and of Rugby and Cricket. He led a particularly good XI in his final year.
He was commissioned into the Royal Marines during the war and afterwards he joined the Malay Police during the Communist uprising. Later he returned to England and was employed in the wine trade. In recent years he was often at events at Hurst and was for some time a member of the OJ Committee. He was a loyal visitor to Cricket Week and although his sight was failing, he came to watch one match last summer.
The President of the Hurst Johnian Club, together with George Lambert and George Hill, represented the Club at his funeral in East Preston.
