Before departure to 1948 Jamboree

Posted on March 24th, 2015 by admin

In 1948 six Senior Scouts were selected to represent the Island at a Jamboree at Blair Athol. This was a ground breaking event as the lads travelled to/from, and attended, the event without any Leaders. Taken just before their departure for Ardrossan on the Tynwald are (left to right) Ron Shimmin (1st KWC), Orry Teare (1st Rushen), Eric “Ginger” Cowley (1st Malew), Peter Newbold (5th Douglas), John Corlett (1st Douglas) and Albert “Nipper” Maddrell (1st Rushen).
