THE 7TH KOWLOON TROOP AT TAI PO
A party of Scouts belonging to 7th Kowloon Troop spent the weekend at Tai Po under canvas. The party, which comprised Scoutmasters Lee Mang Hoon, Alfred Hunt, and S.C. Wu, and 16 Scouts, left Yaumati at 2 p.m. on Saturday and marched to Shatin and there boarded the train for Tai Po, arriving at their destination at 6 p.m. Upon their arrival the Troop proceeded to a hill near a stream, where they pitched tents and prepared camp for the night. The most was made of this opportunity to instruct the younger Scouts in the correct manner of creating tents, preparing the evening meal, improving their knowledge of signalling, etc.
On the following (Sunday) morning the camp was visited by villagers from the surrounding districts, and the Troop was conducted by Mr. Lai Chi-cheong on a sightseeing trip to Hong Lok orchard which proved very interesting and enjoyable to all concerned. The smart appearance of the Scouts attracted much attention.
At 1.30 p.m. they arrived at Tai Po Market where they were invited to tiffin by Ma Yiu-ting. A speech was made by Scoutmaster S.C.Wu on behalf of the Troop, acknowledging the kindness of their host Mr. Ma and expressing appreciation of his generosity. Photographs were taken after the entertainment.
The Scouts then returned to camp, struck tents, and proceeded to Tai Po Market Station, where they entrained for Yaumati, thus bringing to a conclusion a very enjoyable and instructive outing, appreciated by all who participated therein.
