I went on a school trip to St Malo around 1959/60 - old memories come flooding back. I'm 66 yrs old now, where do the years go? The school's name was Elston Hall school nr Newark, Notts.

All those dials and clocks would sell for a small fortune nowadays...mounted on some arty café wall- There is a current fashion for such industrial fittings..''steampunk'', I think they call it. Nostalgia and the swift passage of time-it is indeed scary how the years whip by,and how times change. School trips abroad were pretty basic when I was at school in the '60's- and the fear for pony mad little girls was that all ''foreigners'' ate horse or frog's legs!. The boys were on the lookout for War scraps on the beaches- back then, the War was still in people's memories, even for the 60's born generation.

Not sure of my age or the year but went on family holiday "all the way from Lancashire to France, via Newhaven/Dieppe" with Mum, Dad and big sister. I have just found the ships wheel style enamel badge I insisted on having as a souvenir. Bids welcome  

You could always 'donate' it to Newhaven Museum! :) In the meantime, could you take a photo and email it to us so we can add it to one of our many pages about the Falaise. Thanks, Andy-Editor

Hi Mike/Andy

I am a collector of ship wheel pin badges and I have a collection of over 500 

I have not got a SS Falaise badge, and would like to make an offer if you still have this badge
