Rover Scouts - 100yrs
31/08/2018 By Jeremy Burden

To celebrate the centenary of the start of Rover Scouts a presentation of the story of Rover Scouts with pictures and some remarkable stores of Rover Scouts in POW camps will be told at a free presentation  by Hampshire Scout Heritage at the Crescent School, Toynbee Road, Eastleigh on Tuesday 18th September at 7pm, of which everyone is invited to attend.

 

 

Young men returned from their service during the First World War an wanted to return to their Scout Troops, however during the war time period the service men had become men and the Boy Scout Movement was started and continued to be for boys only. So, there was a need to start another branch of scouting to suit these young men, and so it was that Rover Scouts were started in 1918 for the over 17 year old male.

This section grew in membership rapidly.

Once again these young men were taken away from their Scout Groups with the start of the Second World War, this time (like the first GSL of the 14th Eastleigh) they starting their own Rover Scout Crews in their training camps and places of service. Perhaps the most remarkable places with Rover Crews were in German and Far East Prisoners of War camps.
