Description

Scouting Days 1965.
Amateur film of scouting activity by the 20th Fulham Boy Scouts in 1965.

The film begins with the Easter camp at Englefield Green, including the car journey out of London along the A4 to the 1st Englefield Green Scout Headquarters. After a kit inspection the boys engage in bushcraft and fire making, and run an obstacle course. There's some film of the wedding of "Lesley and Derek" with shots of the guests and bridesmaids, arrival of the bride, and photos being taken of the wedding party after the ceremony. The boys have another camp at Whitsun in Chalfont. They make camp, raise the Union flag and chop wood for the fire. A Campcraft Exhibition features setting up of camp, flag raising, kit inspection and wilderness first aid training. In August, the boys go to Summer Camp at Bovey Tracey in South Devon. They are filmed at mealtime, washing up, felling trees, flag raising, undergoing kit inspection, and visiting the tuck shop. They also take some excursions, going walking on Dartmoor and taking rock samples and visiting Buttcombe Bay where they venture out on to the sea in rafts and go fossil hunting. They also walk around the River Exe by the Tar Steps and visit Widecombe -in-the-Moor. There's still time for sport and games, with javelin throwing, the shot put, an obstacle course, tree climbing and the tug-o-war. The film ends at the Hammersmith Show where the boys demonstrate tent raising, building an obstacle course and participate in war games.

On 25 December 2018, Tom Holloway said:
I joined the 20th Fulham as a cub in 1940 and at age 11 'went up' to the scouts. It was a thriving and energetic group under our skippers Harry Carpenter and Vin Heathcote. My last year - at age 15 - was as a sixer with the Stag Patrol, with John Dutch, Peter Gardiner, and Kenny Birchall and a couple of others.
