Bid to trace names of 12 Bilston scouts

wI WONDER if Bugle readers can help. The 1st Bilston Scout Group is one of the oldest in the world and has been running since 1908.

The paper has featured some of our pictures before.

As it is the 100th anniversary of the First World War this year we are aware that 12 of the young men in this group signed up to go to war. We understand it was on September 27, 1914.

Unfortunately, we do not have any names but we are trying to trace their families and to find out who they were.

Would it be possible for you to publish this letter in your paper?

The group has always met in Prouds Lane, Bilston, even in those days.
