The Valedictory Letter

This was the final correspondence I received from Brackenber's last headmaster, Mr John Craig MA, following his retirement.

If there happen to be any Old Brackenbrians reading this, perhaps you know of the school's final month and year.

It reflects Mr Craig's feelings about Brackenber, his profound devotion and deep affection for what was literally his home and his life:-
