Couldn't find Arty or the cubs section. Mind you my scoutmaster must be north of 85 years old by now

Was he your Scoutmaster Martyn too?.

We could have met..remember the logs you sat on?

Someone recalled Rempstone the other day...took me right back!

Regarding the 'yard of ale '..it was in Kingsand..not Cawsand..i was there when Ark Royal was dumped in Plymouth Bay..before Scrapping.

Went to Rempstone a few times had great fun. I can’t remember the name of my Aekela or Balou, just that I hero worshipped them both.

Speaking of the Ark Royal (or it could have been Eagle). We were in Freemantle, which was heaving with Yanks on R&R from Vietnam,  loading grain for Japan when the Ark Royal came in. You can imagine a 1000 or so (professional) jack tars let ashore after weeks at sea (out of site of land and women) amongst a couple thousand (conscripted) yankee sailors and marines whose sole purpose in life was to dodge bullets and who perhaps had just got their feet under the table. 

It did not mix well and they tore the place apart. Ashore, I adopted a “cobber” accent to protect myself.

Yes and I walked around with one of  those hats with the brim up at one side and carried a boomerang and a 2 pint jug (i think it is Swan) of frozen lager just to emphasize the point
