My friends and I went to the Lvov region, to a pioneer camp. We rented an attic and lived there, sleeping on hay-- boys on one side, girls on the other. We were wearing this kind of uniform: a grey shirt and a dark blue tie. The regular pioneers wore red ties. We had shirts with pockets, whistles, all the stuff. We were all dressed this way. Look at this boy for example: he's got a rucksack on his shoulders and he's wearing our uniform.
