Sidetracked Sidcup (for Samuel)

This is placed in loving memory of our son Samuel who was stillborn at nearby Queen Mary's Hospital on September 25th 2006. If he was anything like his brother then he would have been mad about trains so it seemed a suitable place. When I walked past the other day and spotted this location I knew it was ideal for a more reasonable size sidetracked cache. Most are micro.

This is a small clip lock box hidden outside the station. It is large enough for small toys. Initally deployed with a notepad, pen, Womo WN travel bug, action figure, blue water pistol, small bouncy ball, sky blue VW new beetle, yellow yo yo, purple bubble blower, orange puzzle and multicolour braclet.

Be warned however, it is in a area with a lot of muggle activity so super discretion will need to be deployed. Probably best avoided during rush hour, unless you can look suitably official! Please take care to avoid drawing attention to it. This is why I have rated it a 3 for difficulty.
