Scouting for history

The above video was spotted this week by local historian and author Clive Roberts on YouTube, and has a criminally low number of views. I know it’s not Brownhills, but it’s close, and it’s a delightful thing which I’m sure will stir memories for many, including the Young Davids Evans & Oakley, who were both known to get their woggle on if I remember correctly.

There’s a whole host of stuff relating to this Jamboree on YouTube, but haven’t had time to go throughout it. Why not click though to take a look?

Cheers to Clive there…

    Over on Lichfield Lore there is a picture in her latest post, Multi Story Huts, of the Duke of Gloucs in 1939 at the hut in Leomansley…

    Many thanks to Clive for a great historic find.

    A great example of many nationalities enjoying each others company without any political interference!

    And of course, for many previous generations, Sutton Park was the furthest they travelled from home.

    Hi Bob
    many thanks to Clive, please. A very interesting film . I wonder where the first Scouts met locally?
    Are there any records or photos?
    cheers
    David
