THE HONG KONG SEA SCOUTS
With the object of raising funds for the Troop and increasing the popularity of the Sea Scouts as a vehicle for the instruction and amusement of our Youth, a Concert has been arranged and will take place on Saturday next, February 23rd, at the Seamen's Institute, the Headquarters of the Troop, commencing at 8.30 p.m. sharp.
In addition to several Items by the Scouts themselves, many well known local Artists are giving their assistance. Mrs. Bruce Wilson, Messrs. W.J.T.Phelps, W.H.Billing and L.W.Peckham are contributing vocal items, Miss I.Phelps and Mr. N.Moran on the piano and violin respectively, while Mr. G.H.Ash, an increasingly popular humourist will also appear. The second appearance of the Girls’ Glee Party, and of Mr. G.Evans’ Male Voice Party are attractive items. Miss I.Phelps, Mr. G.Dudley Bartlett and Mr. G.Evans will be the accompanists, and an excellent Programme is assured.
The Sea Scouts are at present few in number, but enthusiastic in spirit and Mr. M.W.Scott, Scout Master, who is arranging this Concert, hopes soon to enrol additional members from the youth of all nationalities in the Colony.
For this purpose Funds are badly needed and all who are interested in the Movement, and of the Boy Scouts’ Movement generally, are urged to support the Concert on Saturday next.
