Share history of sea scouts

Do you recognise yourself or a friend in one of these group photos?

Simon Shoosmith, 1st Fish Hoek scout group leader

1st Fish Hoek Sea Scouts is one of the oldest sea scout groups in South Africa, and one of the two founding groups of the Sea Scout Base on Zandvlei, but much of its history is untold. The group would like to change that.

I’m appealing to the former cubs and scouts of 1st Fish Hoek to come forward and share your memories of your scouting days. Help us piece together the history of our troop so that the boys and girls who are part of it today can find their own places in that story.

Please drop us an email at and let us know the following:

* What patrol or six you were in?

* Were you a sixer, PL or APL?

* Which years were you part of the troop?

* What are you doing now?

The troop is working on an “Old Boys” page on its website where it will be posting further photos and asking ex scouts to identify the people, the event and the dates. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
