Football team. Young Britton's first name was (and hopefully, still is) David. His dad was a policeman and they lived on Marshall Street

I still remember this school trip to Switzerland. I am the second on the left and I am fairly sure that the boy who is third from the right is David Walker. I Started at South View in the September of 1957 when I was 11 and moved to Benton Park in September 1959 when the school this trip would have been in 1958 or 1959.
