Our Scout Column

This Newspaper column was written by Scout Masters from 1915 to 1923 in the Cambridge Chronicle and University Journal. The content varied between local troop news and HQ material – this being war time and everyone was working hard.

It went through at least five authors and as many names and was on occasions openly critical of individuals or District. It has also supplied details of the concerns about a Military aspect to Scouting and the lack of clear boundaries in the actions of pacifists.

It has brought up two new names for the Roll of Honour and supplied some deficiencies in the Census returns for these years.
