22nd Cambridge

Cambridge District Scout Archive

‘In 1925 an interesting letter was sent to Mr Walker, as S.M. of the 22nd troop, from the Chief Constable of Cambridge for the valuable services rendered by the three Barlow brothers, who were members of his troop, at a fire on 5th November at Kidman’s Wood Store, Abbey Walk. A copy of this was sent to B.P. who personally replied with congratulations. I remember this fire and the three brothers were all friends of mine. It is jobs likthis, though generally never publicised, that have happened in the past and still often occur, that give our Movement its Good Name’.

From Cambridge Chronicle, 1921 showing Claude Walker ASM, later SM, and two Barlow btothers.
