"They're Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace" You actually revisit your childhood when you visit Britain.Once again you're standing at the Palace gates with Christopher Robin and Alice. "A soldier's life is terrible hard, said Alice." Then, hearing the bells of London Town, you fondly remember another nursery rhyme-"Oranges and lemons, say the bells of St. Clement's." Seeing the Lord Mayor's golden coach roll by, you wonder if Dick Whittington and his cat might be inside. Instead of riding a cock-horse to Banbury Cross, you settle for a cocky little British sportscar (rented for $5 a day). Then on to Nottingham and Sherwood Forest. Ready for more rugged adventures? Perhaps you're at the edge of misty, moody Dartmoor - l istening with Sherlock Holmes for the baying Hound of the Baskervilles, or in Kent, shivering in your boots with Pip of Great Expectations. King Arthur, Ivanhoe, Lochinvar, Robert the Bruce-all your boyhood heroes welcome you to Britain. So do the friendly people of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. So see your Travel Agent soon and come to Britain. For further informationand free literature,see your Travel Agent or write British Travel Association. Box 11D, 336 Madison Ave., New York 17, N.Y .
