  • Description

    THE EAST AFRICAN FINALS OF THE SUPER SCOUT INTER-PATROL COMPETITION, HELD YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) AT ROWALLAN CAMP NEAR NAIROBI, WERE WON BY THE KISUMU TROOP (LION PATROL). RUNNERS UP WERE THE 12TH. MASAKA UGANDA TROOP, AND TANZANIA'S 6TH. DAR-ES-SALAAM TROOP.

    THE WINNING TEAM WAS PRESENTED WITH THE BATA SUPER SCOUT TROPHY AND WITH A CAMPING TENT BY THE EX-CHIEF SCOUT FOR KENYA, SIR GODFREY RHODES (COUSIN OF CECIL RHODES).

    THE FINALS CAME AT THE END OF TWO DAYS OF COMPETITIONS TO FIND THE BEST PATROL IN THE THREE EAST AFRICAN COUNTRIES - KENYA, UGANDA AND TANZANIA. STIFF PRELIMINARY COMPETITIONS WERE HELD DURING THE PAST FEW MONTHS THROUGHOUT THE THREE COUNTRIES.

    THE 1ST. KISUMU TROOPS WERE THE WINNERS IN 1965 AND 1966, BUT LAST YEAR THEY WERE BEATEN BY UGANDA.
