PROPOSED KILTED BOY SCOUTS.
SCOTTISH TROOP MOOTED FOR KOWLOON.
PIPE BAND POSSIBLE.
At interesting development in connexion with the Boy Scout movement is, we understand, taking place in Kowloon, where a Scottish Troop of this well known organisation is in process of being formed.
If, as there is every reason to believe will be the case, the new Troop is established, it should represent a striking addition to the Boy Scout movement locally, as it is intended that the kilt will form a conspicuous note in the lads' uniforms, which it is hoped eventually also to form a Pipe Band in connexion therewith.
Several boys from Kowloon Docks are showing a keen interest in the project, and it is hoped to augment their numbers from other Scottish boys residing on the Peninsula who are not already members of any existing Troop.
Mr. R.M.Dyer, Chief Manager of the Hongkong and Whampoa Dock Co., Ltd., is actively interesting himself in the scheme, which we heartily commend to Scottish boys residing in Kowloon.
Enquiries by those interested should be addressed to Mr. W.C.K.Mackie, at Kowloon Docks.
