4th Carlton Scouts

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I was in 4th Carlton(st Paul's Own) scouts from around 1978 to 1982/3. Just wondering if they are still going these days and if they still have the band. Parade Sundays were brilliant. I played the trumpet first then became a drummer for a while. Any memories or pictures from members on here.

I was in 4th Carlton scouts round about 1950's Frank Maddison was the scout leader i think his brother Gerald had something to do with it, We was based in an old building opposite St. Pauls Church. We had Sunday parades. I don't know weather they are still going. Frank became an accountant in later life. He was very keen and a good scoutmaster as I recall. I know that he played the violin not on parade of course.

A chap called Phil Barlow was our skip when I first joined, a great bloke. He went on to become District Commisioner. Might search for a few of the lads on Facebook see what they have gone on to do

When I was in the Boy Scouts I could think of one or two who would have been better suited to the Girl Guides   slywink
