I think this Cub Scout camp was possibly at Garstang in the early 1970's. Dad, Matt was Akela
Ken Boardman, Russell and Gary Spargo (sorry if I've got you two in the wrong order!) and Ian Rive
Ian Rive receives his dinner from Arthur the cook and Paul McDonough
Now it's Anthony McClure's turn
They finished off with a nice cup of tea
Cubs always keen to perform for the camera
Families were invited to visit midweek - I'm there with my Mum, Angela Boardman, Auntie Evie (Rive) and Tommy Boardman amongst others
But hospitality for the visitors amounted to one milk crate to sit on....
There were complaints so Ivy chased us off with threats of 'Go home and don't come back or else...' and brought out the Bouncer (Arthur)
So we all went home and left them to wash up.... in buckets... in the middle of the field
