Prince of Wales Banner Won By 1st. Hongkong
The annual Competition Camp of the Boy Scouts Association for the Prince of Wales Banner was held at Chai Wan Camp last weekend.
The standard of Camping and Scoutcraft had improved greatly since last year, but there is still room for more improvement. The boys themselves were very smart in their appearance, and the parade at the Flagstaff on Sunday morning impressed even the examiners.
Final Placings.- 13th. Hongkong (Central Chinese) Troop, 180; 1st. Hongkong (St. Joseph's) Troop, 179; 1st. Hongkong (Sea Scouts), 178; 15th. Kowloon (Mong Kok) Troop, 173; 10th. Hongkong (St. Paul's) Troop, 164; 17th. Kowloon (La Salle College) Troop, 157; 15th. Hongkong (Wah Yan College) Troop, 157; 11th. Kowloon (Wah Yan College) Troop, 153; 4th. Kowloon (Garrison) Troop, 151; 6th. Kowloon (D.B.S.) Troop, 149; 7th. Hongkong (King's College) Troop, 135; 13th. Kowloon (St. Teresa's) Troop, 128.
The Organisation of the Competition, as well as the judging, was carried out by the China Fleet Deep Sea Scouts, under Rev. L.Sherley Price, Fleet Commissioner.
