I remember this well. A group from my school, including me, went to Davos, staying in the “ touristenlager” of the Hotel Schatzalp. Quite a catalogue of firsts for a Fourteen year old kid at the time. We went by train across France through Metz, and along the ultra engineered “Rhaëtianbahn”, and were supposed to fly back to London on a Douglas Dakota, but due to the snow, flew back by Bristol Britannia to Manchester. My first experience of flying and also of being away from home.

That winter we were able to cut about a mile off the school’s short cross country route by running across the frozen Trent and Mersey Canal just before the aqueduct over the River Trent. Nobody drowned but many were perished.

I had mumps, so had to stay in bed for 2 months and missed all the fun.

I was "work in progress" at this time so my only real experience of a harsh winter was 67-68, we had the only car on the street that would start in the mornings (an oval window Beetle), Mam used to wrap the engine with a blanket every night (it worked), the street echoed to Cortina/Hunter/Anglia/1100 starter motors getting slower and slower and.........

The best place in the world on a frosty morning, climbing over the back seats onto the engine cover, almost instant heat, VW heat exchangers? an oxymoron, what heat?

Found it by accident on youtube, or it can be seen and downloaded from BBC Archive site. Lots of fascinating stuff,

dsl, what you mentioned as probably a Herald, could rather be for me a 105E Anglia.

^ Good alternative. I can't decide between them now you've suggested it.
