Postcard sent from Durban to Dorset takes 53 years





A postcard sent from South Africa in 1957 has finally reached its destination in Dorset.

Staff at Monkton Wyld Court education centre, near Bridport, are now trying to trace its intended recipient.

The addressee, "J.C. Belsey", may have been a student, teacher or staff member when the building housed a boarding school.

Now a sustainable living education centre, Monkton Wyld Court was a mixed boarding school housing about 36 students at the time the postcard was sent.

Staff at the centre are now trying to contact former teachers and pupils to find out any information about "J.C. Belsey"....
