I recently found an old dvd showing about 14 minutes of video that I took when I was with 63 Army Youth Team stationed in Ardwick Green, Manchester.
I thought it may be worth while to let anyone who would have an interest in the regiments time providing an Army Youth Team, (one of the best postings I had!)
During my “Cecil B. DeMille” period I bought an 8mm movie camera and shot some footage of some of the places we used to visit with cadets etc.
When I found the 8mm reel some 10 years ago I decided to make a copy for VHS, I did this by borrowing a projector and a VHS movie camera. I loaded up the reel and played the film, projected on an old white shoebox (my walls were dark blue!) and then filmed the image on the shoebox with the VHS camera. My son then decided to digitise the VHS to make the DVD. He gave it a title, thinking it was from 1964 instead of 63 AYT when he copied it.
The result is a very ‘scratchy and wobbly’ film but watchable?
(Scary, the vision actually stops at 14 minutes & 20 Seconds)
Some of the locations are, Pennine Way, Edale, Lake District, Isle of Man, Halton training camp on the River Lune and surf canoeing in Cornwall.
Some of the AYT members as well as myself are, Eddie Edwards, Mick Burgess, Bob Morrow, Mick Blackey, Mick McGahey, George Kirk.
The size of the movie is 319mb.
