Bill Barbour, who has died aged 89, was a classicist, codebreaker, soldier, schoolmaster, political activist and voluntary worker. He was born in 1920, to a family which had founded Combe Barbour (originally Barbour), the Belfast engineering firm; after the Great War the business failed and William Pirrie Barbour, one of a large family, was raised in relative impoverishment. His progress in life was aided by his intelligence, not wealth. Educated first at Bangor Grammar School, he was a scholar at Trinity College, Dublin and took a first in classics in 1942.
