  • Description

    A plane of Fiji Airways, brings to Nausori - a few miles from Suva - the World Chief Guide, Lady Baden Powell, on the next stage of her tour of Australasia and the Pacific islands. Greeting her is the District Guide Commissioner at Nausori. Accompanied by other officials, including the Guide Commissioner for the Colony of Fiji, Lady Baden Powell inspects a guard of honour...and it's a proud moment for the Nausori Guides. Later, at Suva Park, Lady Baden Powell watched Fijian Guides cooking on open fires and was interested to see them making baskets from palm leaves. On the lighter side, there was an exhibition of hula dancing. Lady Garvey, wife of the Governor of Fiji, was among those who watched the display. In all, Lady Baden Powell spent a week in the Fiji Islands. She then returned to Australia before flying on to the Philippines.
