Summer of ’72

Just a note here to record the memory that I first set foot in England in the summer of 1972, on my way to study in France for a month with my colleagues from Allderdice High School (led and chaperoned by Mrs Tamara Jackson) under the ægis of AIFS. For our stopover in London, we stayed at the Mardis Court Hotel in 17–23 Hogarth Road, in Earls Court. That same year, John Williamson and his classmates from Fraserburgh Academy also visited London, in February, and they also stayed at the Mardis Court:
