Schools visit Raleigh Industries

This is the last of the collection of pictures Finola Coy has given to us and we don’t know very much about it. She says it was taken in the summer of 1964 and was a visit to Raleigh Industries headquarters. Several Rugby schools were involved in the trip, including Lawrence Sheriff and Rugby High, identifiable from their blazer badges.

Finola’s brothers Des and Paul are on the picture. Des, on the far left of the front row, had just started at Bishop Wulstan at the time and Paul is fourth along, also on the front row.
