Don Potter in Cambridge

Taken c 1934 this picture shows Don Potter demonstrating rope spinning in Cambridge. Don introduced the activity to Scouting. He was a talented sculptor, a skill shown at Gilwell and encouraged by BP. He later went on to carve the statue of BP at Baden-Powell House. From the Cambridgeshire Collection, A J Covell’s album.

Note the wonderful socks.
