Also in photo are Edna Healey, wife of Denis Healey and Dora Gaitskell, wife of Hugh Gaitskell. Hugh Gaitskell was Labour Leader of Her Majesty's Official Opposition and Aneurin Bevan was his Shadow Foreign Secretary. They were flying to the Soviet Union to meet with Nikita Khrushchev and other Russian leaders in Moscow in early September 1959. Their visit was cut short when Harold Macmillan, the British Premier, and leader of the Conservative Party announced a General Election to be held on 8 October 1959. Labour lost, Nye Bevan died on 6 July 1960 and Hugh Gaitskell died in January 1963.
