Literature
Cecil Frederick Colyer studied at Cambridge and spent time in Nigeria in the Colonial Service. Returning to England he ran a boys club at Uppingham School and during the war was a pilot instructor for the RAF. In 1952 he was appointed as Head of Metal and Woodwork at Bryanston School. He was a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Turners and registered his London hallmark in 1965 then later another in Edinburgh, Scotland. One of his students, Simon Beer (also now a collected silversmith), called him '...an inspired teacher'. He died in 1994.
