   On the occasion of the 11th anniversary, the 1st Kowloon (St. Andrew's) Troop of Boy Scouts held a muster in the grounds of St. Andrew's Church on Saturday afternoon, in the presence of parents and friends. Amongst those present were the Rev. E.A.Armstrong (District Commissioner for Kowloon), Rev. N.V.Halvard, M.C. (Assistant Commissioner for Training Camp), and Lieut. C.G.H.Christian, R.A. (Assistant Commissioner).
   Under the leadership of Scoutmaster R.Dormer and Assistant Scoutmaster R.H.Wong, the Troop, after commencing exercises, gave a demonstration of first aid, a new feature being the use of bicycles as stretcher conveyances. A trestle bridge was next built, after which names were played.
   The Rev. E.A.Armstrong welcomed the encouraging presence of so many visitors and spoke briefly on the aims of the movement. He mentioned the success of two members, Patrol Leader J.Miller and Assistant Patrol Lender A.L.Sanh, who had both gained their First Class Badge and all round cords. The former had also secured the King's Scout badge. Both members were the first to have such success within the 11 years of the Troop's existence, and it gave him (the speaker) great pleasure to present them with the awards.
   A special service in connexion with the anniversary was held at St. Andrew's yesterday morning, when the Rev. G.T.Waldegrave, M.A. (Commissioner and Deputy Camp Chief) preached on Scout ideals. The service was attended by Girl Guides, Wolf Cubs, and other units in the scout organization of the Colony.
