Hello , thanks for the reply I went over in march 67 I think I came home about oct that year , can't remember your name but it was a long time ago , I had my 10 th birthday in Davos , do you live in Birmingham at the moment .Hello,
This is also my first time on this forum. I went to Pro Juventute in May1966 and moved to Caselva when it opened. I was almost 13 so they let me move there with the other teenagers. I flew out with 2 lads, Dougie and Keith (I think that was their names) and sadly Keith died. I don't remember you, do you remember me? Really hope I can find some of the people I was out there with. By the way, I am not from Birmingham, at the time I was from Hertfordshire. Best wishes, Babs
Do we know each other Gillian? I was at Pro Juventute in 1966 and moved to Caselva when it was opened. I wasn't quite 13, but they let me go with the teenagers.I was delighted to read your thread, I was also in Pro Juventute from November 1965 - May 1968. I was there when the English children moved up to Caselva. As I said I went home in May 1968 but in 1971 I returned to Davos again and stayed in Sanatorium Sanitas where the elder patients stayed, and I went home again in 1973, so in all I've spent four and half years in Davos and can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of it. Dr. Hans Meyer was the doctor we were under, a real gentleman. We used to go tobogganing and ice-skating, also we went for lots of walks, and as you remembered the squirrels used to eat of our hands they were very tame. As I said I was deighted to come across this site as Davos has been in my toughts a lot lately and I don't seem to be able to find out much about it. I think you probaly went out there when I went home in May 1968 as I don't remember you but it 's nice to hear from someone who was there as well as they are great memories to have.
Hi Malcolm I would love to see your photo of the albert schweizer snowman I believe the reason they had it was because he had just died around the time we were there, try scaning the photo to your pc then upload to BHF all the best michaelNo sorry I finished my tour in June 1965 , so we missed each other .
