Arthur Aldridge was born in August 1920 and went up to Oxford in 1940 to study modern languages. He postponed his studies to help defeat the Axis maritime fleet, earning a DFC for his bravery in 1941, before resuming full-time education to graduate with flying colours after the war. He married and settled down as a teacher at a boys' school in Worcester for many happy years. He lived in the Malverns until his death in December 2015.
