Scout Archives

 

The Scout Archives was set up to collect, store, preserve and display the history of Scouting in South Australia from 1909 to present day and in Northern Territory from c1920-1988. The Archives achieves this aim by receiving donations of records and memorabilia from Individuals, Scout Groups and State Headquarters.

We have one of the largest collections of Scouting records & memorabilia in Australia that has been catalogued and is searchable on a database. The database is used by researchers and people wanting to know about Scouting. Nearly 1,700 boxes of records & memorabilia can be accessed for information.

The Archives has a small permanent display of memorabilia that provides the visitor with a general idea of how Scouting has developed over the past 100 years. Included in this display is badges, scarves (neckerchiefs), belts, whistles, spoons, flags, tea towels, posters, framed photographs and awards.

Due to the small amount of space available we cannot accommodate a large group of visitors at one time and as a consequence groups up to 15 persons are encouraged to visit and view the display of records & memorabilia. The display of records & memorabilia is aimed at the Joey Scouts to Scout Sections.

With each donation received, we remove all metal pins, glider clips etc and replace with acid free fasteners, photographs, badges, scarves, letters are encapsulated in acid free sleeves.

Books, uniforms and larger items are removed from the donation and placed into dedicated storage areas and the details are linked back to the database and the rest of the donation.

Each donor's name is recorded so that in the future we can make reference to the donor when we display their records & memorabilia.

Who can join our team? Any person who has an interest in the history of Scouting in South Australia and likes the comradeship of other like minded people who would like see the Scouting history preserved.
Having a sense of humour and having fun is also essential.

We are involved in numerous events throughout the year including South Australian History Week, Group birthday celebrations, State and District activities.
