School Trip to Stockholm 1972 (now confirmed as 1968)

I was on that trip in 1968. I’m the tallest person in the back row. Hanko Van Beinum was standing next to me in the yellow shirt. I can remember several faces, but alas only a few names. I think it’s Richard Collier (3rd from the left back row, with coat on shoulder), and Steve Dawe fifth from the left in the back row. I know that Peter Shaw was on the trip, and suggest that he might be the first person on the left in the back row as I remember that he wore glasses, and I can't find him anywhere else in the photo. It was a three week trip across northern Europe to Stockholm full of many adventures. One of which many will remember was the free tour of the Carlsberg brewery at Copenhagen that we discovered on our free day there when we left to explore the city. The highlight of the tour, was at the end when the tourists were allowed thirty minutes in the Tasting Room sampling free lager. I think I went round three times !! Happy days.
