Scouts' Model Aeroplane Exhibition At World Jamboree

   Scout aviation enthusiasts, who are to attend the World Jamboree in Holland, have a grand opportunity of exhibiting their homemade model aeroplanes.
   A Model Aeroplane Exhibition has been arranged to take place during the Jamboree and will be in the nature of a competition for two classes of models:- (A) for non flying models of existing types of aeroplanes; and (B) for flying models driven by elastic.
   Owing to the anticipation of a large number of exhibits, the British contingent may only enter nine models in each class.
   Two exceedingly fine models will definitely be sent for the exhibition. One is a model of the D.H.Comet, scale 1/4 inch to a foot, sent by Patrol Leader G.Old, of the 1st Darwen Troop, and the other a model of the "Blackburn Shark," scale one seventy second, sent by Patrol Second V.T.Samson of the Surrey Contingent.
   Now that Scouts have begun to form Air Patrols in their Troops the Exhibition should be a centre of attraction at the Jamboree to all air minded youths.
