  1. I am saddened to learn of the passing of my old friend and University companion Ian Vellins. We studied together at Wadham College Oxford, sharing early tutorials. I had a high opinion of Ian, which i can see was borne out by his achievements. Unfortunately, duet to the circumstances of life, I had little contact with Ian thereafter but recall at least one meeting in Leeds and also a fairly recent telephone conversation. Ian seemed quite unchanged from his earlier self! I am sorry not to have had more contact.
    I would just like to pass on my deepest sympathy to Ian’s wife, Selma and to all his family
