Girl Guide Standing Against Wall At Her Home 1955


About this memory

Evelyn Whitfield (née Sime).

"The Guide uniform was a bright blue cotton tunic, worn with a leather belt with a buckle. Later, older Guides were allowed to wear the tunic tucked into a navy skirt. The tie was bright yellow and had to be folded and knotted correctly. The metal badge had to be polished with Brasso and pinned on. The embroidered badge showed I was in the Chaffinch Patrol. The beret was navy.

"The calendar was a Guide Association one. The flying duck was, of course, one of a set of three." - Evelyn Whitfield
