It was probably in about 1962 that some of the Scouts who had been our hosts in Zurich came to visit us, travelling in a VW Crew Bus adorned with a scout motif on the front.
They brought some Swiss cheese with them so that they could treat us to a traditional Swiss fondue but unfortunately it was lost in transit. In desperation, we called out Sid Sargent to open up Wards Stores out of hours, but he could not locate enough suitable Gruyère or Emmenthale in the shop. Thus, we missed out on the fondue!
