Top stuff - I had Philip I von Rankin around '86-90. He was a sound monarchist, an ardent historian and has great sense of humour. He is Her Majesty's humble servant and his students' master.

I never liked Rankin for a start, but came to realise that his sense of humour and whimsical nature were just beyond me up untill 6th form. Intelligent and eccentric but good teacher/ hostal master

Needs to lighten up. Drowns on. Generally sound of voice is boring.
