We stayed in the Hotel Lion De Flandre

I believe I am the one you cannot see fully, stood behind Jack Grundy. I cannot remember names but the lad between me and Tom Grundy is Allan (?) Halsall. We went to Blankenberg twice and one set of memories merge with the other; I shared a room on one trip with Tom Grundy and several others including David Turner; on the other trip I shared with Halsall and a couple of others. Blankenberg was fun, you could hire a pedal car quite cheaply and tour the whole town along all the streets despite the motor traffic.

I can see Alan 'Egg' Lowe on there. Boy oh boy he had an appetite. He couldn't half put it away. Nice lad though.
