Sea Scouts sitting on a stone wall and eating what looks suspiciously like fish-and-chips - England, 1930s
Sea Scout smoking a pipe - England, 1930s
And another Scout smoking - a pipe, this time!
He is wearing most unusual headgear - rather like the Italian Fascist Youth hat of the time . . .and he looks distinctly older than 21 years of age!
Sea Scout smoking a cigarette - England, 1930s
Why, Baden Powell would have had a fit!
A rather snazzy sweater, though.

How nice to see the leaders showing some affection!

Dear, dear, it gets worse . . .
Sea Scout in skimpy swimwear, holding a pole, with Union Jack flag - England, 1930s
Hmmm . . .obviously one of the Scout Masters was keen on photography and heroic poses.
Three affectionate Sea Scouts - England, 1930s
I just do not know WHAT to say about this one!
(It is rather nice, though!)
Sea Scouts having fun with pails of water - England, 1930s (2)
A wonderful action shot this, I think!

Well, I suppose they ARE Sea Scouts . . .
Sea Scouts entertaining some visitors to their camp - England, 1930s
Ah, at last some Scouts who actually look as if they really are teenagers . . .but is the handsome one on the left of picture actually smoking a cigarette? And what on earth are they doing to the gentleman on the bed? How odd.

Seven Sea Scouts - England, 1930s
I do hope they are not throwing stones at squirrels . . .
Shirtless Sea Scout washing his legs - England, 1930s
A Boy Scout must have clean legs at all times, you know!
Sea Scout sitting beside two buckets - England, 1930s
Is he eating a bowl of porridge, or making up a face-pack? And why does the chap coming out of the tent look so guilty?
Sea Scout skipper (or Scout Master) and young Scout - England, 1930s
I really don't think this sort of behaviour would be tolerated today . . .
Four Sea Scouts - England, 1930s
I think the three standing up are very fond of each other . . .
Sea Scout with some rope - England, 1930s
What a stance he is adopting! Obviously he was more used to hanging around Picadilly than erecting tent poles . . .
And he must be at least 25 years of age
