Boy Scouts at Ramseys Bush 1908

It was a Sunday afternoon during December 1908. Whilst walking in Ramseys Bush I came across a strange sight. A number of boys, half in some sort of uniforms, like cowboys, camped out in a bush hut of their own construction. Having a camera with me, I lined them up and took snaps.

This chance meeting changed his life direction to Scouting. 1st Leichhardt first Scoutmaster was A.J. Biddles, Beg Todd first Quatermaster and Alex McMillen first Patrol Leader.

These photos are the ones taken on that day.
