Hi James, great picture. My dad, Ken Roberts, was a Rover and Queens Scout I believe. He would have only been 12 in 1940 but do you know of any other pics from his era. I was at 8th Hillside.
Anthony Murphy What interests me about these pics is firstly the close link with the Railways Jack Knapman was a Railway Official as was Norman Scott now an unpaid pensioner. Also 1945 was not that long after the siege of Mafeking so that scouting training was pretty close to military training.
Lorraine Coates What an amazing record, apparently scouts and Rovers had a big following in those days and was an education in itself.
I had a closer look and wow - that is my Uncle Archie Edworthy - fourth insert - thank you for posting
Chiara Sartori How young they all are.
