Just back from camp, 1939!


Young lads back in the club last week were talking about their amazing week under canvas, swimming in the river, and trips to the seaside: and so was Joseph Hammersley, back in the club for the first time in 74 years. Joe vividly remembers going on the 1939 camp with his friends. We found a picture of Joe,  in the centre of the camping party in his striped T shirt and we also spotted him on film of the 1939 camp. He joined the RAF aged just 17 and was posted to Iceland, his best friend  was a rear gunner in a Lancaster bomber, and never  make it back. Joe is pictured in the gym with club leader Leon.
