From the 1953 Magazine - "We have been pleased to see a number of distinguished visitors during the year. The Countess Mountbatten of Burma honoured us by walking round Verdala School on March 18th. She took a very great interest in all she saw, and left us having made several hundred new friends. Unfortunately, Lady Mountbatten's visit to Tal Handak, planned for 25th March had to be postponed on account of Queen Mary's death. We are now looking forward to seeing her during the Summer Term." The 1954 Mag confirms this visit took place in Summer Term 1953, though it looks like it was still winter rig.

I am third from left. Marilyn Hawkins. I have no idea who anyone else is as I was only at the school for about a year aged 7. I remember someone called Denise Aylott ( not sure if that is the correct spelling) who was our class teacher's daughter. I also believe there was a Rosemary? Bellamy in our class who may have been the headmaster's daughter. I do not remember what anyone looked like.
