Onyx Bobsleigh Team, 1973

rp008The only information we have about this photograph is the title, ‘Onyx Bobsleigh Team’. Were these submariners part of the Great British Bobsleigh Team?. Roz Prichard was a teacher at Tilery Primary School, could it have been taken in the school hall? The date on the photograph is 17th July 1973.

One thought on “Onyx Bobsleigh Team, 1973

  1. HMS Onyx, a Royal Navy submarine, had links with Stockton and with Tilery School in the 1970s and visits to the town took place by crew members. The bobsleigh is probably to do with the Royal Navy team in the annual inter-services bob sleigh competition which is keenly contested by the three armed services.
