red mail Scout Troops in Wandsworth 1914-1918
Does anyone have any records or memories of family member(s) who belonged to any of the Wandsworth Boy Scouts' Troops during WW1? I'm researching a family member born around 1898 who was a member of the Boy Scouts in Wandsworth during the First World War. He was a Patrol Leader and appears to have taken Scouting quite seriously, as he gained six proficiency badges and a Service Star. He wore a Scouts' lapel badge on his everyday jacket when not in uniform. Around 1917 he won an impressive-looking trophy. He was clearly proud of this achievement as he sat for a studio portrait, in Scout uniform, holding the trophy. The photo is clear enough to show some details of the trophy: a wooden shield appx 16in / 40cm tall with a circular, cast metal medallion approx 4 inches / 10cm in diameter in the centre. The relief image on the medallion shows two scouts with walking poles standing on rocky terrain. The trophy has four engraved 'scrolls' on each side of the medallion, a large engraved scroll at the top, and a smaller engraved shield at the bottom. Sadly, even a high resolution scan is not clear enough to show any of the engraved text. I would love to find out more about this trophy - what was it awarded for, and its whereabouts now. It's the kind of thing that somebody's granddad or uncle would have been proud to have won, and would surely have handed the story down to younger generations. If anyone has any thoughts or memories of this, please do contact me! Thanks
SYTNER family
I am trying to trace a late relative John Jamieson b. 1916 who appears on the 1939 Register along with the Sytner family living in the district of Malden & Coombe, Surrey. The family are living in Wandsworth in 1911 and consist of May, born 1906 and I assume to be her parents, Albert, born in Hull and his wife Fannie. If you have any information I would be pleased to hear from you.

red mail James Hollis b. 1757
My 4th great grandfather was born Aug 19, 1757 in Wandsworth Surrey (according to his pension application for service for the American patriots in the American Revolution). He sailed to South Carolina as a British soldier and served under the command of Lord Rawdon at the siege of Ninety Six (1780 when Hollis would have been 23). While later guarding Charleston harbor, he deserted and joined the patriots. Does anyone have information on a Hollis family in Surrey in the 1750s? Does anyone have suggestions on where to search for a birth record or military record? I would appreciate any help.
