New acquisition

The Cambridge District Scout Archive Collection has been given a Wolf Cub flag of the 8th Cambridge. Held by the late Donald Beard since the closure of the pack the flag is on a two part bayonet joint pole with a silver metal leaping wolf finial.

Unlike the existing Wolf Cub flag in the collection (19th Cambridge), which has the affiliation ‘Wesley’ under the wolf head, the new donation has the words ‘Wolf Cubs’ beneath the wolf head.

It has mild wear but looks as if it was put away following a cleaning.

Based in Romsey the group met at Romsey Mill and were associated with the Methodist church. The last ‘8th’ ran between 1964 and 1969, as far as the archives show. Little else is known, not even the colour of the scarf.

See ‘8th Cambridge’ for the outline history of all groups that ran under the 8th Cambridge name.
