"More than 200 Britons," over a two-year period, were to join TEA. Among them was Colin Townsend who sends this photo from "an unknown newspaper of September 1964," featuring some 18 of the 60 who were about to depart. Colin suggests: "Might be fun to put names to people. I am on the far left."

Clive Mann's reply:   Thanks for this Colin. In the departure photo, from left,
