The gentlemanliness and bigheartedness of a typical GCI Old Boy

There is a story of a GCI boy who gave a lady a lift somewhere in the northern part of Nigeria. Their car broke down and they had to sleep in a hotel, sharing a room to conserve funds. The girl placed a pillow between them to make for 'PRIVACY'. The boy, till morning, did not cross the pillow.
Back in the car the wind blew the lady's scarf over a fence. The ex-GCI boy attempted to jump the fence for the scarf but the lady pulled him back, saying: "How dare you jump a fence when you could not cross a pillow?"

Story told by Naseem Sanyaolu (1964) in 'Nineteen Sixty-four" - a book commemorating 1964 Set's Golden Jubilee.
