25. Smith, Mrs.Florence

as related by Miss Dorothy Hadingham, South Nutfield, Surrey, in "The Trefoil".

1985, Saturday 4th May was the day of a party with a difference: it was for those who had been enrolled as Guides before 1925, and this included three who had attended the 1924 World Camp at Foxlease. Mrs. Florence Smith had come from China as a young Guider, and when she arrived feeling a little lost a kind Guider took her to find her group. She was surprised that everyone saluted and jumped to attention as they passed and arriving at her site and thanking the kind Guider she asked "Who was that?" to be told "That's Lady Baden-Powell!"
