As 2020 marks the start of a new decade. We thought it would be nice to look back at some photos of scouts in Southampton in previous decades. Here are over 80 photos of scouting in Southampton from the 50’s to the 70’s.
If you’d like to see more photos from the archives. Check out 2nd Southampton’s
