The Begining

 First New Cross Scouts were formed in January 1908 with one patrol - the Peacocks. They were registered in May 1908 with B-P (before he even registered his own troop). In the August bank-holiday 7 youngsters ( 6 of which were only 12) pulled a trekcart from New Cross to Maidstone, camped over night and then pulled it back.
