Roll of Honour: Not Cambridge

Cambridge District Scout Archive

In researching Cambridge Scouts who died in conflicts occasionally a reference is found to a Scout who was outside Cambridge District; most likely Cambridgeshire Scout County.

Where these are not included on Gilwell Rolls of Honour they have been noted and forwarded to the Scouts Heritage Team.

They are on a separate list and identified alphabetically.
