Obituary Colin Ling

Colin always spoke fondly of his time at Blundell’s and made several life-long friends.

Colin went up to St John College Cambridge in 1957 after two years’ National Service. In 1960, he joined the Colonial Service and was posted to Zambia, which he loved. On his return to the UK in 1970, he undertook an MBA at Cranfield University and spent the rest of his working life in Local Government before returning to Harrogate with his wife Pauline.

Colin had two sons, James and Edward.
