Richard Wright


Richard Wright

He was Lt Cdr RNJ Wright RN (born 1931), a Queen’s Messenger and author of two books, one on Chinese coins and another on the Chinese Steamship Navy. And the stepdad of Pip Farquharson for 45 years.

He started at St Edmunds School, Kesgrave, Ipswich (affectionately known as “Mrs Marshall’s” school) in Sept 1939. He actually writes in his diary, “Mrs Marshalls having been evacuated there from Ipswich” and seems he went to her school at Drakestone House from May 1940 for another year.
