Cubs go camping – 1951

It is August 16th 1951 and the cubs are about to go camping at Monkton Combe.

Cubs off to camp in 1951

This is a newspaper photograph which came from the Wiltshire Gazette. Inevitably, it is the fairly large dot quality that news photos were almost 65 years ago. The caption gives us the names of the three cub leaders. We don’t know the names of the others but somebody out there might identify the lads who would be in their early 70s by now.

These enlargements have been softened a tad to reduce the dotty look.

Here’s hoping those cubs enjoyed the camp and we hope many are still enjoying life.

And do get in touch if you can name any of the people in the photo.
