Switzerland 1960      Party One

Two photographs taken at Niesen both clearly taken at the same time (August 25, 1960), and some snap shots taken on trip.  Photo one supplied by Michael Eakins:  David Munns ('highest back row), next to him Tony Mitchell, and Walt Loasby  centre front row in check shirt, should be able to name most of the others.  I think I can also recognise Fred Neville (behind boy with striped shirt) and Alan Randall (2nd from left), Ian Rawlings (3rd from left) and I certainly recognise the two faces on the extreme left.  The second photograph, lower down shows more boys on the right.  Several more photos of trip lower down the page. Richard Ward is standing behind Mrs Cheale (white skirt), mrs Ethel Ward wears the horizontal striped top..

Front row 1st left Michael Eakins and Peter Leigh is front row 4th left. Also at the back are Barry Reynolds, David Edwards.

Photo two:  This second photograph is much poorer, but the teachers Ivor Cheale and Charlie Ward and the whole party, other than the lady in the striped dress taking the photograph, appears to be present.
