A Girl Guide Badge

Betty Gye was a Girl Guide soon after World War II and was earning her badges then. We have seen one of her badges before (click here). Today we’ll look at another.

First of all, here is Betty’s hostess badge.

This was worn on the Guide uniform but a small certificate was also issued and which Betty kept.

It seems that Betty’s two examiners thought she was a good hostess on October 19th 1948.

Betty is still with us although she now lives in Devizes. Visitors to the museum this year will be able to see her lovely hand written memories of growing up in the 30s and during World War II. Betty has recently put this together and we have a copy in the museum.
