Comment of contributor/s and sources

R.G.Betterton is mentioned in “Activities of some Former Students” a (copy) pamphlet of Ruskin College Oxford (undated but pre-1951?) under educational achievements on page 3.  Sadly the lack of sources for this former student underlines how great is the loss (through destruction) from the original Ruskin College Archive.
