A poor quality photograph of the 7th Cambridge showing a number of staffs with patrol pennants. Not every Scout appears to be carrying a staff. Presumably every P/L did.

The first of the pennants below ‘Boy Scouts Fund’ has a distinct history. From 1930

Further Blue and Green pennants were flown from the ship Discovery for every £500 and £1000 raised by each County. It is not known how much was raised in total by Cambridgeshire.

T L Issacson was selected having recently been awarded a Scout medal for saving life.
