David Talbot - Ullswater, The Lake District, 1975

I attended Ullswater in 1975 as a police cadet, young and painfully shy. I have many great memories, not least of which was the early morning dip in mid-february when diesel was freezing in tanks it was so cold! I also remember sharing a room with a borstal boy and learnt a lesson that was to serve me throughout my career as a Police Officer, no matter what someone has done in the past they should always be given a chance to change, Outward Bound did that Im sure for my Borstal Boy friend. I just wish I knew his name and what happened to him.
