99 years ago during the Great War, Scouts from 2nd Southampton were on board the ill -fated hospital ship which sank in the Aegean Sea. Earlier this month the Daily Echo ran a story about the youngest survivor ‘George Perman’ and his experiences of being a young person at war.

It’s certainly been a busy weekend for our group. A very productive morning today combatting the rubbish on the streets of Shirley. Many thanks to Maccy-D’s for the free burgers and ice-cream afterwards. Well done to our adults, Scouts, Cubs and even a couple of Beavers who joined us straight from their sleepover!
