Cambridge District Scout Archive
Registered in December 1921 with IHQ number 8448 it was a closed Group. The initial registration was uncertain about who was the Controlling body and recorded them to be led by ‘? the Vicar and SM + Chapman’ of St Andrews Church, Old Chesterton.
The HQ of the troop was The Institute. I have not yet identified this building.
It returned census numbers for Scouts for 1921 – 1923, on registration recording one leader and eight Scouts, in 1922 one leader and fifteen Scouts.
Despite a short lifespan it listed three SM’s
- A B Westcott SM Home address being Dene Rectory Peterborough
- Edwin King SM Trinity Hall
- JSL David SM Queens College
- Reg. Taylor ASM
It was listed as in abeyance and not re registered in October 1925.
Note: ‘Old Chesterton’ is a location. The 10th Cambridge ‘New Chesterton‘ was listed in 1910, although this was possibly not the official title.
