In the 1950s we called ourselves "Wolf Cubs" and I remember being taken in the back of a removal lorry with all our camping gear for a week long camp with the 4th Bexleyheath Cubs at Birchington.
Although it was supposed to be a "camp" in fact we all stayed in a hut but spent most of our time on happy outdoor activities. The highlight was a day's outing to Margate. I remember buying a souvenir plastic salt and pepper pot to take home to my Mum and Dad!
I had a great time with the cub pack for more than two years until I moved to Bournemouth in 1954. This camp at Birchington was the event I remember most. Now I am in my mid-sixties but I still have the handful of badges I earned as a cub!
