All Saints 16th Allerton Scouts outside the Church Hall in 1942

The Cubs taken in the same place. Can you spot the Wolf's Head being held on the left side? It has ribbons attached with the boys names, and although its a bit battered and bruised, it still lives in my loft!

Own Scouts Parade led by Mr Sutton

Cubs Outing to what ooks like West Kirkby baths to me - Open Air and freezing! Mrs Sutton front and centre.

It's Ronnie Titchen, good friend of my brother Barry. No idea why he's wearing his crash helmet at camp though

Apparently this is called Peg Out when first time campers were pegged out on the floor and had shoe polish smeared all over their faces! Oh the joys of Scout Camp!

My Dad Matt's notes on the cost of taking the pack on a weekend camp at Glazebury in August 1968

These notes were for a week's camp at Biggleswade near Bedford in 1968 when fish and chips for the whole troop cost £1.00!
