1953 is the year that is a milestone of events, the ones that I remember most are: 1/ Coronation of Queen Elizabeth 11. 2/ Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, on the first ascent of Mount Everest. 3/ The year that I left School. The School Motto was " Learn or Leave " but they would not let me leave any sooner. What year sticks out for you.
