The 1982 document sows the seed of an idea that a more in depth documented history of Romford Scouting would be a good thing. Our District Archivist John "Bunny" Warren took up the challenge and by 1997 produced a bound A4 volume running to 46 pages.
This has been scanned and re-mastered as an electronic document (Bunny's original was on an electronic typewriter) and updated in places. More modern technology has also enabled us to add pictures of some of the documents to which Bunny's original text refers. This has become a living document and further updates are possible and expected.
As more pictures are added the downloads have become bigger so the latest version has been split into three downloads. The updates are as follows:
08/09/2014 3rd Havering were the 6th troop who in 1967 attended the Greater London North-east Diamond Jubilee Camp at Schmitburg, Germany but hadn’t responded to Bunny’s original request for information. This section was updated accordingly.
27/12/2014 Notes added in pale purple panels about the Dyer Cup and Romford winning the county swimming gala in the late 1940s. Picture of Bill Adams added to the DC page.
Note added in pale blue box regarding 4th Romford re-starting to 1950’s chapter.
Note added in pale blue box about international exploits to the 1950’s chapter.
Two photos of Group Gang Shows added to illustrate Bunny’s original text on that subject.
A picture from St Georges day 1954 is added at the end of the section.
