Tribute to Maurice Nathan who died in London on 28 October 1999

Maurice Nathan was born in Basra in 1920 but as a child attended the Cathedral Boys High School in Bombay. In 1946 he worked in London before going to Israel in 1949 where he married Rebecca who was born in Baghdad. He served in the Israel Army. Later he and his wife and children eventually settled in Stanmore, London. He was much respected by his colleagues in his business life, and ex-students from Bombay who had settled in England, Israel, Australia and the United States. A well-known Talmudic dictum summarised his character: "Say little, do much and receive all with a cheerful countenance".

He will be sorely missed by his devoted family and a wide circle of friends.
