16th Morecambe & Heysham Scouts

Providing information about the Troop and its Scouting Activities

The Early Days

Found recently, stored away - This page in an "Exercise Book - Supplied for use in naval & military schools" lists the 16th's Troop members in 1958.
Recognise anyone you know?
Sadly, a number are no longer with us.

This page from the same book lists Scouts who were paying in camp monies - for the Whit Camp 1958, I think, at Witherslack.




Finally, in another similar exercise book there are progress records from 1957. This illustrative one's for Terry Derham, see photo below. I think the writing will be that of Ronald Preston the then Scout master.
