    I absolutely loved boy scouts... the camping, go-karting, abseiling, wide games, jamborees. It also where I had my first cigarette and drink.

    I also had quite a lot of responsiblity thrust on me from an early age as an Assistant Patrol Leader.

    Don't you just! The proudest day of my life was reciting my scouts honour.

    I also won a cup for loyalty.

    Boy's Brigade - 1st Warley!

    Learned to play the bugle and drums (kettle and bass).
    Learned to love camping and the great outdoors.
    Plenty of various activities.
    And developed a dislike/mistrust of organised/state religion. Church parade and bible class were virtually compulsory.

    I was in the BB.
    I got groped by an older member (I beg your pardon) at camp. I left a bit sharpish after that. I still see the bloke about - he's married with a couple of kids now!

    Brownie and Guide, I leant some first aid, mucking around and camping. Even when I camp as an adult now there are a few rules I have retained from those camping days - neatly rolling up the doors etc, making the bedding area neat, and if having a picnic you must walk around the edge not the middle of the "table". However I have sucessfully forgotten all those rules relating to chemical toilets/pits. Lots of misbehaving on camps.

    I was a seconder to Robert Gay (unfortunate surname) who was my sixer in the 4th Lewes, still remember with fondness a jamboree to Sheffield Park, where I was awarded a tent peg 'Cub Scout of the Jamboree' that was 1968 and I was 10. :sad: In the evenings there was a large indoor roller skate rink, by the end of the week I was pretty good!:eek:
