Quorn Scouts 1955

Quorn Scouts at the Norfolk Summer Camp circa 1955.

This information has been supplied by Christine Cox (nee Baum):
The photo was taken at Buxton Lammas, Norfolk, where the scouts were camping. The boy fourth on the right is Graham Cox. He is my husband's brother and they were both in the Scouts at that time.

This information has been supplied by Bev Woodger:
The boy on the extreme right half cut in half is Ray Hardy. He was awarded the Scout Gallantry medal and one from the Royal Humane Society for saving a child from drowning. I think it was from the canal but it was before I became involved with them. I would think he did it in 1950 to 52.

One boy in this picture (and other scout pictures - artefacts 794, 975) was not from Quorn. They were Leicester boys who I thought would benefit from a holiday. Usually the one without any uniform. The boy Ray referred to below - his mother died whilst we were at the camp.

Ray Hardy has given the following information:
The boy second from left is Tony Roadley, the boy next to him is David Hincks. Ray thinks that the boy on the extreme left belonged to another scout troop and is not a Quorn lad, so does not remember his name. Ray did indeed rescue John Halford from the lake where Beardsley Road, Kelcey Rd etc houses were built. He received the Gilt Cross Award from the scouts.
