Unidentified Scout

Do you recognise him?

This scout looks as if he belongs to the early years of the movement.  Do you know who he is?  Or can you identify anything about his role from his uniform or general appearance?  We’d love to hear from you.

  • Hi Nick ! Your copy of this photo is in monochrome. However, the slightly battered original (?) is in sepia on a postcard and can be found at HALS under ‘Watton at Stone’. My recollection is that, whereas the ‘scout’ is not identfied, there is reference to Watton at Stone post office on the reverse.
