COLONY'S CORONATION PROGRAMME
FOUR DAYS' HOLIDAY FOR THE SCHOOLS
BOY SCOUTS AND GIRL GUIDES
The Rally of Boy Scouts and Girl Guides of the Colony at the Hong Kong Football Ground, Happy Valley, will take place from 3 p.m. till 5 p.m.
For the past two months the Sub Committee dealing with this section of the Celebrations, under the guidance of the Commissioners for the two Movements, has been busily engaged in arranging the numerous details. The officers in charge of the various Scout Troops and Guide Companies have been assiduously training Scouts and Guides for the many activities in which they will take part. Their efforts should provide a thoroughly entertaining programme for the public on the Friday afternoon of Coronation week.
His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government, who is now acting as Chief Scout for the Colony, has signified his intention to be present, and at the conclusion of the Rally will hand the "Prince of Wales' Banners" to the winning Troop and Company for the past year.
