Outward Bound Organisation

To Serve-To Strive-and not to Yield”

An infrequent outdoor activity, but one managed by Caldecott, was that one of the more senior boys would be invited to join an 'Outward Bound' course; either at a Sea School or a Mountain School.

In my case it was a Sea School at Aberdovey, in South Wales. Course No 161 in August 1956, lasting the usual one month.
