Tim specializes in International Boundary cases in the International Court of Justice (World Court) in the Hague. If a Petrean has a Government in tow with a boundary problem, Tim would be pleased to assist! Tim is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and lists his interests as walking, drama and woodwork. He wrote in 2001: "I continue to busy myself with international boundaries and African boundaries in particular. You probably heard of our success before the World Court in Dec 99 when Botswana was awarded Sedudu Island in the Chobe river against Namibia's claim-anyone who has been to Chobe Game Lodge will probably have visited the island. In the last few months we have concluded two maritime boundary treaties for Nigeria in the Gulf of Guinea-one with Equatorial Guinea and the other with Sao Tome and Principe: offshore oil is the driving force and there is rather a lot of it about out there! Currently we are looking at Nigeria's boundaries with Benin, Niger and Chad as well as continuing to fight the Land and Maritime boundary case with Cameroon before the Court-Equatorial Guinea is also now intervening in the maritime aspects of that case which remains the largest ever to come before the World Court-by a distance! Hearing will probably be at the end of this year or beginning of next."

Christopher Waldschutz (G63) acquired his life long passion, flying, through being involved in the Gliding Club at Peterhouse. Talking of passions, an even more stimulating experience in his education seems to have been the visit to Peterhouse by the movie starlet Dana Winter, who was Howard Hughes' girlfriend at the time and co-starred in a film with Elvis Presley. The adolescent testosterone levels at monastic Peterhouse obviously soared off the scale - and he's still talking about it 40+ years later!

He organised a number of highly successful cricket tours to Zimbabwe and will be sorely missed.

Paul Watkins (E65) completed his schooling in Mutare. He lost the lower part of his left leg to an anti personnel mine while doing national service, something that didn't stop him taking up hockey and moving from goal keeper to centre half! His elder brother Alan (E63), who himself lost the lower part of his left leg in a motor bike accident in 1996, was greeted by Paul while being lifted from the CASEVAC helicopter with the unforgettable comment "We seem to be running out of left legs in this family!" [Webmaster - they obviously made those Watkins tough as Alan's scouts dragged him on a 17 km nature hike and caving.] Paul qualified as Durban University as a Civil Engineer and worked on the Henry Hallam Dam near Harare. He then emigrated to Australia with his family where he has his own company his own business printing bar code labels in Toowoomba, Queensland which looks and feels very much like the tobacco growing parts of Zimbabwe.

Some interesting people he has flown include the Google founders Larry Page and Sergei Brin and CEO Eric Schmidt, Al Gore, Barbara Bush, Colin Powell (interesting dealing with Secret Service on those), Caroll Shelby (car designer) and Joe Montana (football player). He wrote in 2009: "We moved to the Hawaiian Island of Maui earlier this year. I reluctantly retired from flying at the end of 2007, but it was also a relief as the Internet business I had started as a retirement income supplement was demanding more time. I brought that with me and it is working out fine, the location makes little difference. Anyway, here we are enjoying a tropical paradise that is also part of the USA. I'm surfing whenever the swell is up in the south or west, and looking for a surf kayak. We just love it here, only wish we had made the move years ago.
