The First 25 Years

‘History of the Tenth Finchley Scout Group: 1914 – 1939’

AW Hartley produced a wonderful handwritten piece of work complete with sketches and watercolours of scenes during those years. The book is a narrative of the events over those young years, largely containing details of the numerous summer camps the group ventured upon. Sadly, the book being 67 years old, it is in a somewhat distraught condition, though still complete.

The original book includes numerous single colour and some colour pictures. The printed version is reproduced fully in black and white and we therefore include the colour images here.
