Deep Sea Scouts

History of the 1st HMS Kelantan Deep-Sea Rover Scout Crew

First look at the Den

TUESDAY, 23rd OCTOBER. 1945

Today I went ashore at 1300 and walked into the Den of the Hong Kong D.S.S. for the first time. I had arranged with Rev. Horsefield for a number of coolies to clear it out for us, it being in far too bad a state for us to have done it in the rig we had to wear when ashore. Pop Newton came in during the afternoon, whilst I sat there dreaming of what it might become and we had a long yarn which gave me a real liking for him. I had found another really good friend and Brother Rover.

Before we left we arranged for a meeting on Thursday, 25th October, to work out our future policy, and departed in very high spirits.
