Product Description

A nice interesting Scouting group dating from around the 1930s.

It consists of a set of Rover Scout epaulettes, a leather Scout’s belt and 2 Scouting Jamboree badges, 1 Hikes badge and a Senior Scout Badge. The badges consist of firstly, the 1st Australian Pan-Pacific Jamboree that was held in Frankston (Victoria, Australia) between 27th December, 1934 and 13th January, 1935. This Jamboree was the first international gathering of Scouts outside Europe (12,000 Scouts took part) and the only Australian Jamboree attended by Lord Baden-Powell. The badge is in white metal, with a kangaroo and the Fleur de lis and AUSTRALIAN JAMBOREE FRANKSTON VICTORIA 1935. It has the maker’s details of STOKES MELB. (Melbourne) on the reverse. It is worn on a straight pin.

The other badge dates from 1933 and is for the 4th World Scout Jamboree, a gathering of Boy Scouts from all over the world, that was hosted by Hungary and held from 2 to 13 August 1933. It was attended by 25,792 Scouts, representing 46 different nations and additional territories. The badge is made of green enamelled copper/brass, in the shape of the fleur de lys, with the white stag of Hungary. It is marked 1933 JAMBOREE. On the reverse it has a small soldered safety pin
The third badge refers to the Australian 1935 Hikes and consists of a pressed brass lozenge bade with a backpack inside a map of Australia. It has 4 holes to sew on the shirt.

The belt is the standard brown leather belt as supplied by Leckie Walsall. It has had dry seal badges applied to the leather at meetings, jamborees or hikes. The first is difficult to make out, but seems to be of mountains with F.H. 29. The second is for the 1935 Australian Jamboree. The third is dated 1935, with the Australia HIKES emblem.

There is a circular white metal Senior Scouts hat badge. One of the suspension blades is missing
Finally, the pair of Rover Scout slip on epaulettes with yellow woven insignia.
Condition on all items is very good, except the leather which is a bit dry.
