1948 – London Trip

Back Row: Hunter, Julian Appleby, Roy Eden, A.W. Lyne (Burton Labour MP), Larch, Brian Sharrat, Ian Pidoux, Woolley
Front Row: Donald Warden, Carey Hopkinson,  F03, Derek Holford, Guy Smith, Ellick Ward

This was a Sixth Form day trip to London. As well as Ellick Ward, the trip was accompanied by Burton’s first Labour Party MP who can be seen trying to disguise himself as a pupil at the rear.

The MP is A.W. Lyne who won the Staffordshire Burton Division in the 1945 General Election – he defended the seat in the 1950 General Election but was unsuccessful.  Ellick Ward was the chairman of the Burton Labour Party which was part of the reason behind the visit. The picture is taken outside of the Houses of Parliament which was one of the main places visited.
