The Dauphin contingent of Boy Scouts, numbering 50, left on Wednesday for Sewell, where they go into camp for a week. The boys are in charge of Lieut. E. Manby and Mr. E. Batty.
The officers of the corps are:
Patrol leaders – Stanley Nicholson, Clarence Bossons, Percy Lowes and Tom Walker.
Corporals – W. Gardiner, Henry Terrell, Ed. Gougeon and Cliff. Baird.
New uniforms, including belts and hats, were supplied to the boys before they left and they looked spic and span.
They left on No. 2 as the train pulled out they lustily joined in singing.
“Where the boys are dog-gone glad to lay in Sewell;
“Sew” – I don’t know how to spell it.
But I am going to my home in Sewell camp.”
