Photo of the Month - July 2001
Every photo that is sent into the competition is kept on file for future
use if it isn't used straight away. These pictures were sent in by Geoff
Rhodes, of the 8th/14th Epsom Air Scouts, but unfortunately I had lost the
accompanying email that told me about the camp they were taken on. However
we were having such a great run of sunny weather in July that I could not
resist using the photos because even though it was taken on a summer's day
two years past it would remind you of the June and July of 2001. Since then
Geoff has got back in touch (11th August 2001) with more details and after
a reminder from Geoff I have eventually (2nd March 2002) got around to
updating this page.
These are the 8th/14th Epsom Air Scouts at Summer Camp 1999 at Ridge Farm
near Wareham, Dorset. The "wet" photo was on the first Sunday, which was
the hottest day of the year. Patrol Leader Paul was more than happy to
have just received a bucket-full from his best mate Kevin!
Cooling off in the hot weather!
This is obviously a well organised Scout Group with the matching casual
wear for the Leaders and Scouts.
In the group photo we are actually wearing our ROYAL BLUE tee-shirts. We
are an RAF recognised Air Scout Group. Note the RAF Pennant below the Union
Flag on the flagpole.

Geoff (the self described fat grey-haired one left of centre) finishes off
with an update on his own role in Scouting.
I passed over the job of SL at the end of last year in order to take on a
more pedestrian position with the Group. I am also a DSL and HQ Specialist
Adviser for Air Scouting.
