At All Saints the headmaster rarely had a cigarette out of his mouth and being over 6 feet tall the kids nicknamed him 'The Towering Inferno'.

 

I thought this was one of the best nicknames I've come across.

Headmaster of Carfield Intermediate School in the 1940's ,"Old man Yak" (Mr.Kay).

Not very original, but there you are ! He was certainly one of the fairest men I've ever

met,a real gentle man and there were some tough kids at that school.
