Yes the Teacher my Dad Kenneth Gordon Orrell, usually called Ken. I was intrigued to note "Ray Partington (Hong Kong and Globe)" has him as Kenny as I have never heard him called that.

After the war Ken's wife Neva (a teacher) persuaded him to train as a teacher in one of the emergency teacher training colleges at Risley (Warrington) see Hansard:
