Snowy Oliver

Cambridge District Scout Archive

Arthur Oliver of the 23rd and 28th Cambridge was a member of the Rover Crew that participated or were mentioned in the Evercircular letters of 1939 -1944. He was in the RAF and stationed for a while at Suttonbridge.

Snowy was later involved in running the Scout shop with Ted Russell and later John Chambers.

Snowy, rarely Arthur in the archives, went grey/white at an early age hence the nickname. His son Geoff Oliver of the 28th and Sir John Cockcroft VSU, also went grey early.
