In order to achieve completion of this brief 70 year History of the Group by 70th Anniversary Celebration Day (19/10/86), two members of the Sub Committee formed independently compiled sections of same, and a third member completed the extensive typing, photocopying and collating of material.
The Anniversary Sub Committee are anxious to supplement this record with further detail of interest and importance. We are hopeful that readers will be able to supply material in respect of some of the gaps and conjectures from their own knowledge. Alternately, others may be able to advise names of older residents of the area who may have memories of our Group in earlier times, and whom we can contact.
Unfortunately, there are no Group records in existence (to our knowledge) covering the first 20 years of operation. There is also little history at Victorian Scout Headquarters available to research for the same period. This results from an over zealous worker who decided on a wholesale clean up of old records some years ago. Nevertheless, some early records of registration details of boys and Scout Leaders have been retained and we record here our great appreciation to V.S.A. Archivists Commissioner A. R. (Dick) Milne, M.B.E. and Mr. M.(Mac) Stidston, who forwarded considerable detail to us. The latter was in respect of names of Leaders and boys together with dates of registration, promotion of Leaders etc., though even here there is a lapse of some years (1918 1929).
It would be impossible in our brief history to refer to all but few personalities by name and those who have been given largely refer to 'those at the helm' senior Leaders and Presidents of Parents' Committee etc. We apologise for any noteworthy omissions therefore, and suggest any shortcomings should be made known to the Sub Committee so that the record can be put straight for the future.
We are also mindful of the fact that some of the earlier names mentioned bear no Christian name, as custom up to the 1950s generally recorded names in Minutes merely as Mr., Mrs., or Miss.

As every Scout and Scout Leader will know, Lord Robert Baden-Powell brought to fruition his concept for the Scout Movement in 1907. The Movement flourished rapidly and spread from England to many parts of the world, particularly to member countries of the British Empire (as it was then known).
The first Scout Troop organised in Australia occurred in Sydney in the earlier part of 1908. Victoria followed the N.S.W. lead soon afterwards and about June 1908 the 1st City of Melbourne Troop was established and in quick succession 1st Malvern, 1st Caulfield and 1st Camberwell ('Melba’s Own') Troops were formed, though not necessarily in that order.
On 7th August 1916, 1st Glen Iris Troop was registered with 14 boys enrolled. Over the passage of time with re organisation by Victorian Scout Association (V.S.A.) the Troop title was changed in 1932 to 11th Camberwell, and again when Camberwell was split into three Districts in 1964 identification was changed to 1st Camberwell South the present title.
This is a history, necessarily brief, of the fortunes of this Glen Iris located Scout Group over the intervening 70 years. It is the story of the efforts of many people who have guided the Group through the years, involving many thousands of hours of dedication either as uniformed Leaders or as Parents' Committee members. The culmination of these efforts has seen excellent achievement of many boys, and in recent years girls, both during their Scouting years and afterwards as citizens of Australia.
The source of material has largely come from Group Minute Books kept since June 1937 of monthly meetings held by Parents' Committee and Reports made to those meetings by the Leaders. We are mindful that those Minutes may reflect the individual feelings of those who compiled them, but nevertheless from experience the writers tend to record those items on which due emphasis should be given. Supplemental to the Minute Books and the material supplied by V.S.A. conversation has been held with a number of persons associated with our Group in the years prior to 1966. Upon completion of 'the History' it is intended to give acknowledgement to these kind people.
