In 1946, I joined the 1st Balmoral Scouts as a Cub Scout. The meeting hut was a primative affair. The little timber room had an east veranda and was situated on the grass on the west side of The Esplanade, opposite the swimming baths. The tram lines were behind the building. We played on the grass to the south of the hut.
About 1948 the scouts move to a new larger scout hall at the north west corner of Balmoral Park backing on to Coronation Street.
I left the scouts in 1954 in my mid teens. I attended The Mosman District Scouts Jamborette, which was held in Burragorang Valley in the summer of 1953-54 (prior to flooding by the Warragamba Dam).
The 1st Balmoral Scout scarf was mid blue, edged with a tartan strip.
