Prior to his retirement, the Honorable Sir Oliver Popplewell was a distinguished High Court judge for nearly twenty years and was involved in a number of celebrated cases over the course of his long career. He subsequently returned to university to take a degree in PPE at Harris Manchester College as Oxford's oldest undergraduate. The second volume of his memoirs, Hallmark: A Judge's Life at Oxford, is also published by I.B.Tauris.
A delightful book. Here is a life of integrity, intelligence, decency, diligence and public service retold in a clear and self-deprecating style that captures the reader from the last paragraph to the last. From the Foreword by Stephen Fry. 'I commend Benchmark to anyone who likes to read of distinguished men who lead honest and interesting times, but are not too pompous to recall the time they drank the last of the milk during rationing.' Rachel Johnson, 'The Sunday Times'.
