100th Anniversary
About Jamboree Contigents
My Contingent consisted of 10 members - 3 Scouters and 7 Scouts. All of these were selected from many applicants. 4 members of the Contingent were from Brunei (Town) District, 4 were from (my) Belait District and the remaining two were students on holidays who came down all the way from England to join us in Greece. They were Scouter Mohd. Ali Daud and Scout Awang Abu Bakar Haji Ahmad. My Deputies were Scouter Yahya Mohd. Yussof and Scouter Mohd. Ali Daud.

The gift of tea from the Tea Board of India was really a remarkable one. Besides its good taste it was very kind of all Indians to present such a large quantity of tea.
