Diary of the Chesterfield Scouts at Sandy Bank Camp, Bracebridge Lincoln September 1916 WW1

Continuing my DMZ Demilitarised posts, here is a transcribed and researched handwritten diary in my collection.

It was written by a Scoutmaster of some Chesterfield Scouts from Derbyshire who camped in Lincoln for a week in September 1916.

It is rich with great details of camp life, fun on the river and the occasional glimpse of WW1 wartime life. The Battle of the Somme was in its third month whilst this was happening.

    1. A great find indeed, and hopefully inspires more scouting (and guiding) romps on the Tabletop. A shame that there was only four of them on camp …
      I look forward to see what you do with your Guides and Scouts. Currently researching the British and American Camp Fire Girls … and the Kibbo Kift.
