Colourful Scouts

A small piece on Stained glass and generally bulking out reports but largely looking for histories of early leaders. The double barrelled Vaisey-Hopes and Balfour -Melvilles are easier to locate than a Green or a Rogers but as readily come to no clear conclusions or end up in the doings of their later life.

One sentence in an otherwise work centred recollection or obituary seals the deal and that Scouting encroaches into professional life is significant in itself. It does, however, mean Scouters with an unusual name or a professional or academic background are more likely to appear.

I am working to link a pawnbroker to a Group, but many more will not be easy to isolate.

A bit at a time.
