Nos. 2 and 3 are my Uncle Bert and Aunt Ethel Lindfield from Saxon Crescent in Horsham.
My mother, Nancy Feist (No. 5), went on all the trips with the club. She would send me postcards from each place visited so I have it well documented.
On one of my visits back to England she had booked a seat for me to go to Longleat with the club. I had a great time.
