The Squirrel Club

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:35 am by Aleksan

You’re a Farmer’s son, Burnfield, would you like to join the Squirrel Club we are setting up? This came from a senior boy at my macho all male Boarding School run on religious and quasi military lines. I should have smelt a rat, but I didn’t, and naively said Yes to joining the Squirrel Club, rather touched by the idea of promoting wildlife around the School. “Have you got your own gun, Burnfield?” The penny dropped – the Squirrel Club was not about an interest in squirrels, but about killing them. I did not join, and as far as I know the whole idea fizzled out. Long live the squirrels, even the grey ones.
