A new seam

A new source has been located; some of the circular letters that were passed between members of the 23rd Cambridge Rover Crew who were scattered on Active Service have been loccated.

Their existence was mentioned by Ken North in his ’70 years’, but it was assumed that they were lost, as indeed many were during the war. They were forwarded many times, as each member was moved from barrack to barrack, sometimes two or three times between each new entry.

These letters are of Scouting and Cambridge and tell of the doings of men, often in the less glamorous roles that the Services require.

They also tell of the deaths of friends and Crew mates.

Already the snippets from a first quick reading are informing the pages on line.
