Heartwarming stuff. Very much of its day, reflecting an era where working class people were seen as either horrible or almost slaves; you could become a Guide by reading a book pretty much and orphans got adopted just like that. I found nostalgia for the days of 'Empire' but also disappointment because Empire was never the wonderful one-sided bliss that it's made out to be. Anyway, sweet characters, funny bits, and scary stuff that is always ok in the end. ( )

Book description
Terry Vaughan discovers the delights of Girl Guides in this third instalment in the Manor School series. Uniforms, patrol leaders, badges, first-aid, signalling ... These and more appeal to Terry's adventurish nature and her enthusiasm drags much of the school in her wake. Just when boys were lining up to join the Boy Scouts, girls were looking for something too. Dorothea Moore introduces girls to the ins and outs of becoming a Guide.
