Radlein Obituary November 25 1945. Killed in Germany as the result of an accident. James Anderson was not a prominent "School" figure at Radley, but he was a considerable influence in his Social. He was unable to play many games because of a weak heart, but he never allowed this to depress him. He had a quick and active brain, and was rarely at a loss. He eventually accepted responsibility as a House Prefect. But it was in the "Study Life" that we really got to know James, and those of us, who did know him well, will never forget him. He had a great and enveloping sense of humour, and an infectious way of showing his obvious joy in living with others. There will be many who will deeply feel the loss of a real friend whom it was always a particular pleasure to be together with, both at Radley and in later years.
