  1. We were a different sort of troop....if you've ever seen a film called the dirty dozen...we were a bit like that but we were good and all got on. When we left and our leaders Pete Mason,Eric and Dave Green left....it went down hill from there...we were far from conventional and the kids round the top didn't want "conventional" and the new leaders tried to run it as a "squeaky clean" outfit.....but it died a death....sad really

Spent many a happy time playing in the brickyards newting, mud bombing the blokes working down in the excavations and skating in winter on the frozen ponds....
