Scouts, 1930s : group photograph

This is an undated photograph from E. A. Brown's collection. It shows the 5th Scout Troop, Victoria Bridge School in front of an attap hut constructed on the school playing field. The Scouter in the centre (seated) is Edward Payne (EMF Payne) who came to Singapore from Mauritius in 1935. He was a teacher at Victoria Bridge School and Acting District Commissioner of the Scouts in 1937. He left for Selangor that same year so the photograph can be dated between 1935 and 1937. Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff. Information contributed by Richard Hale, Kevin Tan and Wan Meng Hao.
