    • IT IS NEARLY SIXTY YEARS AGO SINCE THIS SCHOOL TRIP TO SWITZERLAND.BUT I REMEMBER KEN 3RD FROM THE RIGHT BACK-ROW WAS ON HIS HONEYMOON WITH HIS WIFE, WHO IS STOOD IN FRONT OF MR BAILEY, AND HER MAIDEN NAME WAS LILIAN WILBERFORCE. WE HAD JUST PLAYED SOME LOCAL LADS FOOTBALL. HOPE THIS HELPS.

      • Can anyone in the photograph remember the area we stayed at and the hotel? I have tried Mill Lane School and the library archives without any results.

    • The Sawyer is Barry then in his 1st teaching post at Mill Lane. The youngest of us he died some years ago as did Dennis. Somehow I have survived though now housebound from the effects of a rare peripheral neuropathy.

    • The Sawyer was Barry the 3rd in the family. He died in 2006 and Denis died 4 years later. The eldest, I am the survivor struggling with the very painful consequences of a rare peripheral neuropathy that has damaged the nerves in my feet.
      The Peter recalled by Anon is a cousin who attended Richard Hind, then the Secondary School 6th Form prior to University.
