Yikes, Andre. That's a blast from the past alright.
All those names - like a who's who of mates, especially the ones from Gibbon Road like Nigel Crouch, Chris Doyle and Billy Bushby.

Judging by the manic looking fringe, that looks like me at the right hand end of the middle row, next to Reg Woolford.

Oh what memories - "Bombs coming over", counting 60 seconds and so on!

Oh boy. I can still remember the hut and the game where we used to 'ho'p at each other with folded arms! Must have been character building or something!

I can add a couple of names in the back row. Next to Steve Funnell is John Sexton. The 'Saunders' is Mike. He, John, and I used to all live just round the corner from each other in 1st and 2nd Avenue

I can only name one other and that's another of my brothers: Robert (Bob) Sanders 2nd from the right back row. Kev and Rob always used to say they were off to 'cubes without the e'.

That's Akela on the right. British Bulldog was another game we used to play. Many of us went on to Scouts after Cub(e)s and some of us were asked to leave in no uncertain terms!

That's my mother, Joyce Terrill on the right. My dad (Des Terrill) built the cub hut.

I am standing on the left next to Joyce Terrill. I was then a Cub Instructor and my jungle name was Rickki. I later became Assistant Cub Scouter Leader and then Cub Scout Leader. I left the Group on my marriage in l974 but continued my Scouting life in Lancing and am still involved in a administrative role to date.

The original Scout Hut was built in approx 1955, I think Alan your dad helped to build the extension on the end which housed toilets and kitchen.

The Group had moved from the Loder Hut (old railway huts in the Drove) as these were unsatisfactory premises.

It was unfortunate the original hut was burnt down - I have a photo of the opening ceremony - my father was Group Chairman and very instrumental in the acquisition of the site and building.

At least the Group now has a substantial and more permanent building.
