Banstead in Portsmouth!

Thanks largely to George Ford, the young geography teacher, and Ray Spencer, the sports teacher, boys at Picquets Way had many opportunities to go on educational and recreational cycle tours and outdoor camping holidays in the late 1950s and early '60s – not least Henley Fort, the Surrey County Council education centre near Guildford.

From Henley Fort they would go on day trips – on this occasion to Portsmouth. Here are two friends posing in front of HMS Victory in Portsmouth Harbour. The year: 1957. The boys: unknown (unless anyone out there knows better...)
