Roy Cackett : Gaul 1972-1977;  School Prefect in '77, A-Levels, little or no sporting achievements unless someone else can remember anything.... ; Two years in the Army was fun. Did an Agriculture degree at 'Maritzburg Univ, then an MBA from Surrey, UK. Have done many and various things, few of them consistent with an exemplary career. Now MD of a large agricultural chemical concern in Durban. Would prefer to be on vacation. Been married for seemingly ages, 2 whelps. Advice to all you juniors out there: never marry a woman brighter than you. And don't get into anything to do with agriculture. And point your ass downwind. South Africa.
