Philip was always a pleasure to deal with in a work sense and a real gentleman. I will remember him best for the acoustic cup football competitions. He was always the first to reply in our call for teams, and I loved the way he approached the competition with so much enthusiasm. Not daunted by some big losses in the early years he always had a smile on his face and came back for more the next year. He really valued getting his work colleagues and acousticians together and having fun. I am pleased he got to see the team lift a trophy in the last competition.
