Incident Report #34 1979

The Team were called out to search for 2 adults aged 48 and 28 years and 9 Cadets average age 17 years from Wealdston and Harrow area. They were all safe and well (just) at 2-30 a.m. on 29th October. They had no idea where they were and navigation was very poor as was their equipment.
Footnote: If this Group had not been found when they were it could have been much worse, if not a disaster. They were very exhausted and in poor condition. They were also miles away from their intended route — a search dog found the party at "Cam Spout", Scafell, assistance was given by the Millom Team. Weather Conditions: Cold, Wet, Hail Showers and Very Wet Underfoot.
