So, to celebrate the news that the Scout Association of Britain has taken on 16,500 fresh recruits since January last year, its biggest membership surge in four decades, here’s a small selection.
I’ve mostly chosen ones which also show interesting bits of Dorset in the background (between Seatown and Bridport). If you can provide more information about some of the people and places in these pictures, please get in touch. Lots of people would love to hear from you.
A final quick point for now: I do have more photographs. If you’d like to see more put up on this site, please get in touch.
