Plan of the School779 viewsDate illegible but sometime in 1960s, probably early as the Music Room hadn't yet moved. Plan is somewhat stylised compared with aerial shot HERE

These (planned?) block numbers conflict entirely with THIS PLAN

Tal Handaqians in Athens 1966913 viewsThe guys are amazed at a Greek guard in Athens.That is assuming my memory is correct about where this was! I am sure it was during the Devonia cruise of 1966 that included Delphi, Athens, Istanbul and Rhodes. The following year was Crete, Izmir (Ephesus), Lebanon and Haifa, in Dunera. I must dig out the slides I took that year!1 commentsChris HowellsAug 09, 2008
Dunera_1967.jpg
Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 19671466 viewsI am sure that this was the Dunera cruise of early 1967. I was in 3B at the time and this is a scan (took a while to get it down to 250kb!) of a picture that appeared in the Times of Malta.
I cannot name a soul, (apart from me of course! Front row,4 along with head at jaunty angle, book in hand and OMG turn ups!) So if anyone can fill in those names: go for it!
