As directed, I'm feeling free to introduce myself.
My name is Derry (short for Alexander, don't ask me how!) and I have
been a member of the Scout Association for
about ten years. I first joined as a Cub in the 4th Leith ScoutGroup
(in Edinburgh) at seven years of age. My family
moved to London when I was nine so I joined the Challenger Scout
Troop (Kenton and Kingsbury District, Greater London)
After two years there, we returned north of the border, to stay in North Berwick
so logically, I joined the 1st North Berwick Scout Group where I
stayed until my time was up. On leaving the troop I returned as a
leader since a) I felt like it(on the grounds that I would enjoy it),
b)I would probably be quite good at it, and c)there was no Venture
Scout Unit and I didnt want to leave the Association.
Two years on, I am still here so I must have been right about a) and
I am going to Edinburgh University in October to study Geology (at
which point my e-mail number will change) and I am hoping to stay
with my current troop. This Summer's camp will be in Wales(Snowdonia
approximatly). I havent been there before but the troop has. The
camp there before was slightly before my thime but the other leaders
are hoping for more of the same sunshine and less of the same midges.
I might add that I have bought a mosquito net just in case and Babs
is seriously considering doing the same( she was there last time).
Yours sincerely Derry Hamilton
