English camping,the early years,we start with a ridge tent

This was about 1955 or so,we have the tent and just about nothing else,no money for sure,the car we used to travel in was my grandads,tents and other gear were ex army and from the Army & Navy stores,what a mind boggling place to wander around in,being ex defence force gear,it was all good quality.

The Ford behind was not ours,we had the loan of black Morris Oxford.Thats my mother in the picture.

Photo by RH McBride and its a self portrait too,click on the picture and see my dad in that mirror at the back of the tent awning! The picture is now around 56 years old,I wonder did my dad ever know he was in the frame?
