Flag Breaking Ceremony
Livingstone Patrol meeting
The 32 Raffles Group was led by an adult leader who was not from our school. Top photo shows him standing beside the flag pole. The British NAAFI was in the background. It was situated along Beach Road opposite RI. After the flag breaking ceremony we met at the scout den for a short briefing. Above photo shows Livingstone Patrol meeting. The guy without uniform was a new recruit. We started each meeting by singing scout songs and also learned to sing new ones. At each meeting I learned new scout crafts and trainings such as tying scout knots and pitching tents. Hiking and camping were discussed and planned for the school holidays.
Livingstone Patrol had a log book to record the various activities carried out at each meet. We took turns to log the book. I looked forward to my turn, as it was a source of delight for me not only to log but also to decorate the pages with sketches. The log book was kept in a large wooden chest together with scout equiptments in the scout den. Wish I could see the log book again to delve on my handiworks once more.
