John Hemming-Clark’s first couple of years as a Scout Leader in Chislehurst at a time of life when some are starting to think about putting their feet up.
His trials and tribulations as he seeks to learn the ropes with only the most essential training to help him - that and his life experiences - are written about in hilarious detail.
Troop meetings, hikes, camps, excursions, his relationship with beavers, cubs and explorers as well as girl guides, fellow leaders, trainers and managers are all included.
"I have to say this is one of the funniest books I have ever read and yet it still provides an accurate account of the perils of being a scout leader! Having been in scouting 10 years I thought I had seen it all, but this still made me laugh almost constantly! Well worth the read!" Amazon review
Alex lives in Chislehurst, Kent where he’s, so far, been cosseted from the harsh realities of life. He has just moved up to the Scout Section from Cubs and is so excited! He has decided to keep a diary of his new adventures.
His Scout leader, John (Skip) also lives in Chislehurst. He has kept a diary for many years. However, more recently his diary has focused on his Scouting. Not so much the adventures, but the trials and tribulations of being a Scout leader as he recounts the same situations as Alex but through a leader’s eyes and not a Scout’s, alongside his - sometimes strained - relationships and dealings with Scout parents.
Sleeping Bags and Tortures is three stories in one book: the diary of a Scout, the diary of a Scout leader, and interwoven together the hilarious story of one year in the life of 3rd Chislehurst Scouts.
