Notes :
(1) It has been suggested by some that this tour was postponed and ran instead on 21st April 1963 however a letter seen by the Webmaster confirms that prospective passengers for this tour were informed that it had been cancelled due to insufficient numbers and cheques were returned un-cashed. It appears the postponement suggestion may stem from the fact that it  has been suggested that the original tour tickets were employed in 1963 (though passengers on that date had also to be in possession of another more basic ticket dated for the 1963 running date).
