Have recently been coming across a lot of photo albums and single pictures being sold - invariably with little or no clue as to which unit is being featured or quite when it was taken. It may well be that that sepia portrait of a unit or camp scene from the 1920s, 1930s or 1940s could be a prized acquisition for the same unit nowadays - if we only knew which unit was featured.
So my resolution is to print off all those photos of my unit, put them into a folder, and label each clearly with what unit it is, where we meet, when/where the picture was taken, and who features. Who knows, maybe in 30, 50 or 100 years time, the Guides of the day will be keen to see the quaint uniforms we wore and the strange things we got up to back in the 2010s . . . I need only think of the BBC Domesday project of the 1980s to realise that computer is not the best place to store the photos long-term . . .
