Wymington Scouts

Rushden Echo & Argus, 17th August 1934, transcribed by Kay Collins

IN CAMP - The 1st Wymington Boy Scouts spent a most enjoyable week camping at Ryde in the Isle of Wight. The journey down was remarkably good considering the amount of holiday traffic. Besides the usual activities of bathing, etc., various members visited Shanklin, Cowes, Brading and Fishbourne, and seven of them journeyed by across to Portsmouth and visited the dockyards, going over the "Victory," H.M.S. "Hood," the aircraft carrier "Courageous" and submarines, destroyers, etc.. Some cf the boys also saw H.M. the Queen and the Duchess of York when they visited Ryde. Other interesting sights were the big yachts which includes "Bratannia" and the liner "Berengaria."

The camp was in the charge of Group Scoutmaster E. H. Smith.
