Then we'd... go to camp, have a camping holiday, about six weeks. In the summer.  And we were in these big marquees.  They were... about twenty to thirty of us in one big marquee, you know, we'd sleep on the floor, fold our beds up in the daytime and make them all uniform. And we used to go around the country and country walks, learn all about the flowers, and... have a wonderful times.  Was free to do what we liked.
