Mr Alexander French was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1979. He died in London in November 2001, aged 89. Sandy was one of the relatively few remaining pupils who entered the Primary Department of the School, in 1919, which still existed then. He worked with Barclay's Bank, moving to the foreign section, which took him to Palestine. He was later seconded to the British High Commission to deal with food supplies to the troops in North Africa and the Middle East during the war. After the war he met up with a Mr Spinney and together they set up a chain of supermarkets, creating a company called ‘Spinney’ in 1946. When Israel was created, the company was liquidated and was set up again as ‘Spinney's (1948)’, a food importing and exporting company, in Beirut. It grew from small stores to hypermarkets in the Near East and then in Saudi Arabia. They also had contracts to supply oil companies in the Trucial States and in Muscat. When the company was finally sold, Sandy became a consultant to Palestinian and Arab partners until 3 years before he died. He loved all outdoor activities - golf, tennis, skiing, mountaineering, bird watching.
