William Keith Language,my father was a very educated man, he started his B Com degree at Wits in 1939, then the 2nd ww broke out, he immediatley joined the Transvaal Scottish as a Gunner and was taken prisioner by Romels forces in north africa, he was an escaped POW. On return to S A in may 1945 he resumed his degree at Wits, studying at night whilst working during the day. He was a very senior member of staff at Wits for many many years, his friends included Harry Seftel, Philip Tobias and so on. My father had a passion to help the uneducated, a passion which I continue. He was a staunch supporter of the then United Party, I remember my parents holding political events in their house in Bryanston. I saw my father as a hero, he could not stand cowards, even as a woman I do not tolerate cowards,May his legacy live on through my 3 grandsons who live in England. Love you daddy. Robyn
