    Default Liverpool Lives

    This may be old news but I have only just been given this link and I love it. The Grandfather stories and the pics of the camping are so cool

    Well the location question is easy....

    It's Jubilee Tower on Moel Famau - somewhere I went often, both in groups (scouts and church) and with my family.

    Thay are neat pics - any idea of the decade? I'm guessing 30's or 40's (or earlier) based on the swimsuits.

    I don't think it's a school trip based on the tents - unless Colemendy was tent based when it first started.

    I think Scouts, but don't see any trace of uniforms...

    Wasn't easy for me, I did not have a clue.

    Did you look at the stories? The Grandad telling the kid he was John Wayne is hilarious

    Says if you did not go to Colemendy you are not a real Scouser!! I did not. My mother would not allow it. We went away most weekends. I feel bad now, I always wanted to go.

    My pleasure. I like it a lot. The person who sent it to me is a Brummie but also is George Harrison's cousin!

    What a fine, healthy looking group of boys and young men. I agree with Az_Gila as to period, and I wonder how many of them went off to war, and never got back. Sorry to sound so morbid, but I was watching the Remembrance Day ceremonies at our local cenotaph.
