Remembering scroll

Share this article

ARE THERE any Girl Guides in Chichester who remember the Scroll of Friendship being taken around the country on foot, bicycle, boat, pony etc? My sister, a Brownie,

and I, a Guide, were taken by car (a real treat) by Miss Greenhill, a Brownie leader, to pass this on to Guides at West Ashling.

A photograph was taken of us by the press and put into the local paper, with a write-up headed ‘The Nash Twins’. This caused a great laugh in our home because we were sisters. We never had a photograph – no money, we were a large family. I would love that picture for a ‘snippet of life’ booklet I am writing for my family.

Unfortunately I don’t know the date or year. I’ve tried the West Sussex Record Office and the library without success. I was with the 3rd Chichester Guide Company as Barbara S Nash.
