James McMaster - Eskdale, The Lake District, 1971

I was a Police Cadet with Northumbria Police and was sent to eskdale OB as part of my development before joining the Police. I still have the journal that we were given and I've seleceted one small item from it; "06.30hrs second day (1/7/1971) a quick run round the tarn and a swim off the jetty. 08.00 hrs breakfast medical then photographs. 11.00hrs canoe capsizes. after lunch circuit training then intorductory run round the grounds followed by the agility and ropes course. Main meal then volleyball for an hour.Lights out 22.00hrs asleep as soon as my head touched the pillow."
Fantastic memories :)
