Old Photograph Scout Camp Yetholm Scotland


Old photograph of a Scout Camp by Yetholm, Scottish Borders, Scotland. The 1st Glasgow Scout Group has a claim to be the first Scout Troop, as it holds a registration certificate dated 26 January 1908. The centenary of Scouting was marked by a debate and reception in the Scottish Parliament initiated by member of the Scottish Parliament, Robert Brown, in December 2007. The 2nd Fife Dunfermline Scout Group was founded in 1908 and is the oldest existing Scout Group in Fife and one of the oldest in Scotland. The 28th Glasgow Scout Group's Hut was used to hold the Nazi Party Deputy Leader, Rudolf Hess, after his plane crashed in nearby Eaglesham. The oldest Scout group in Greenock and District is 5th Greenock and District Westburn's Own. It started in 1908 and the first Scoutmaster was Sergeant D. Ferguson.
