The number after the year is the number of months that have been transcribed - but NOT the number shown on this WebSite.
If no number, the year is complete.

If the year has  "x", it has not yet been scanned.

No clearer reasons for the recording of History have ever been enunciated than these words :

"We...have the benefit of a long and proud history. This not only gives us a trusted framework of stability and continuity to ease the process of change, but it also tells us what is of lasting value. Only the passage of time can filter out the ephemeral from the enduring. And what endures are the characteristics that mark our identity..."
Taken from the speech given by Queen Elizabeth II to both Houses of Parliament at the start of her Golden Jubilee celebrations, Westminster Hall, April 30th, 2002.


Olave kept a diary from 1900 until her death in 1977.  The diaries are held at the Scout HQ at Gilwell.  They are currenty (2024) being scanned and transcribed, and the text is being posted here, month by month, starting in January each year, so the number following the date is the number of months completed, and where the number is not zero, the date is a Link you can click on to go to that Page.  When a year is complete, there will be no number.

Months so far transcribed (out of over 900 total) - 75
Not all are shown here - I am working on the others.
