1949 – French Exchange

French Exchange

French Exchange – Ian Pidoux

This picture was taken during the 1949 exchange, the last one in which I took part. By now the numbers were greater and it was a shared expedition with the Girls High School – but we still travelled as a group without accompanying adults.

This photo was not taken in France but on the ‘English’ part of the exchange on the steps of Burton Town Hall after a reception there. Apart from myself (back row left), Mr Ellick Ward (front row left), Harvey Griffiths and Fred Mallett (front row right) I can see the spectacled face of Roy Harrison and one other Grammar School pupil third in from the right on the back row“.
