The Scouts of 1978

May 20, 2015

It always seemed rather odd that Market Lavington, in the middle of landlocked Wiltshire, decided to convert its scouts into sea scouts. Or maybe it was just a good idea to give the lads who joined up a bit more aquatic experience.

Outwardly, the standard scout uniform was exchanged for something looking a bit more naval as seen in this 1978 photo.


This is, of course, taken in what often gets called The Scout Hall but was built as the Workman’s Hall.

It is a grand photo, showing a very neat and proper collection of leaders and lads – but you may have guessed it – we have no names.

However, we are confident that somebody out there will be able to name all of these lads some of whom will now be around 50 years old.

Do get in touch if you can help and remember you can see a larger copy of the picture by clicking on it.
