Obituary: Geoffrey Trease
Friday 30 January 1998
Trease certainly got through to my friends, some of whom were the clever sons of scientists sent to nearby Drigg (later Calder Hall/Sellafield). Our abiding memory of Trease was his reading to us the script of Cue for Treason, an exciting story of a plot against Elizabeth I of England, with teenagers as hero and heroine. He read entrancingly. When we returned two terms later to Harecroft and heard that Mr Trease had been taken into the Army, we burst into collective tears.
