Little Gaddesden Boy Scouts

Little Gaddesden Boy Scouts

Boys named in the Little Gaddesden Scout Diary 1912 – 1922 were among the youngest from Little Gaddesden, Ringshall and Hudnall to serve in the First World War. The document contains photographs, written descriptions of activities and newspaper cuttings for the years 1912 – 1919. It was presented to the Scouts by their President, Miss Bridget Talbot, on 1st July 1912 and compiled by her thereafter. It names the boys in the pre-1914 and 1919 Scout Troops, gives accounts of their pre-war fundraising, camps and other exploits and mentions the war service of some of the older Scouts. The original document is now held at HALS, Hertford. (Ref: Acc 3131).
