I remember this jamboree. Also, we used to take the train, with our bikes, from New St. station to Sutton Coldfield for a day's outing and to fly our model planes.

At the 50 year anniversary, we took visitors around who had been at the Jamboree and the one thing they all remembered was the American camp as they had equipment and food that none of the others had ever seen! Two Japanese visitors said that they didn't remember the trees, and I tried to explain that they had grown in the passing fifty years.

I remember visiting the Jamboree. I was 10 years old at the time and went with my brother Trevor. The thing that stood out for me was the Red Indian Wigwams. We used to visit Sutton Park on the Midland Red Bus from Perry Barr and had many happy hours there.
