Anthony Linck , Founders 1962 – 1967
Tony Linck was born in 1949 and attended Falcon twice, once from 1962 to 1964, then returning in 1966 for his last two years to do his A-Levels. The unusual gap in the middle was the result of Tony contracting Type 1 Diabetes.
On leaving Falcon, Tony became an articled clerk in Salisbury with the accounting firm, Cooper Brothers. After a number of years there, he transferred to their London office until around 1979 and then moved to Durban. In Durban, Tony is thought to have worked as an area rep for one of the large South African supermarket chains, and did some travelling around the Bantu homelands. In around 1990, he moved again to the Isle of Man, where his parents lived, and worked in the offshore finance sector.
Privately, Tony was an enthusiastic re-enactor, belonged to the Napoleonic Association and was very much involved with re-enactment events. In concert with his Napoleonic interests, he wrote a book in 1994, “Napoleon’s Generals”, which was to be the first in a series. Sadly, the series never became reality as he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, and passed away in November 1999.
