1946 Picture Post Article - Quorn Rawlins School Trip to the North of Scotland

This article was written by Fyfe Robertson and appeared in Picture Post Magazine 8th June 1946. The whole magazine was very kindly donated by Ken Sambrooks.

Donald Hughes, the science master at Rawlins Grammar school took 15 children to the remote area of Acheninver in the North of Scotland. Here they had to fend for themselves in the most primitive of conditions. There were five boys from from Steyning Grammar School in Sussex and four boys and six girls from Rawlins. Also accompanying the pupils were Miss Graham the history mistress from Quorn and a another master from Steyning.

Some pupils are named and some are in the photographs. The article makes it difficult to identify specific pupils, so if anyone can help, please get in touch.

The PDF file is quite large, so may be a little slow to load on older machines.

Girls named (all from Quorn):
Mona Austin
Jean Moores
Branda Harris
Diana Kirby
Betty Stewart
Hedi Schnabl

Boys named:
Brian Springham (Quorn)
