Recorded in 1956 but probably relating to 1955 Queens Scouts and Jamboree participants of the 5th J Boocock and D Greenwood built a diving bell and stayed submerged beneath the Cam; an act for which they won the Adventures Trophy.
The Trophy was passed to Cambridge District by Roger Summerfield, GSL of the 1st Harston.
