Well, not to be outdone by my
brother, Bill Dancer, here is a photo of a Girl Guide camp! Must
be about 1954/55.
We had heavy canvas Bell tents
that spent most of the year rolled up. Hence, the tents smelt
awful, especially with five Guides encapsulated at night.
Cold, damp morning trips out to
the hand dug latrines and badly cooked food really put me off
the great outdoors for life. However I am very grateful to those
who gave of their time to give us Guides this experience.
The Guides are (left to right);
Philippa Lee, Jean Moss, Josephine Piper, Susan Dancer (ie me!)
and ???? . Other details escape my memory.
