Organisations for young people
1st Redcar Scouts
|I have a feeling that they were the only open troop in the town. All the rest were associated with other organisations such as the second s were with Redcar parish church and the thirds were Coatham school etc. There were certainly many Roman Catholic boys as part of the troop.
