    Mr David Gallop does have some information about Cdr Linton VC as a Cadet at Osborne. Mr Gallop is a retired guide from Osborne House who has taken a special interest in the Osborne cadets. For example: he was able to send me a copy of the Osborne Magazine (Christmas 1915) when my Father (Blake Term 1914) was in the College Regatta rowing in his Term gig. Mr Gallop can be contacted on davidggallop@btinternet.com
    Even though retired, Mr Gallop delights in giving a fascinating tour of the Old Stables where the Cadets were taught and had their dormitories (now gone). One of the unheated plunge pools attached to each dormitory is still there!
