100th Anniversary
About Jamboree Contigents
The Singapore Contingent consisted of 5 Scouters, 2 Rovers and I Senior Scout. They took a sea journey to Port Said and then travelled by train to Cairo and took a plane to Athens in Greece. The contingent arrived at Marathon on the 29th July, 1963 and was placed in Antiochis Sub-Camp.

H.R.H. Prince Constantine, the Chief Scout of Greece declared the Jamboree open on the 1st August, 1963 and handed a scroll to the Marathon runner for despatch to the Mayor of Athens by a relay of Scout runners. The Marathon Runner for Singapore was Rover Albrecht.

Singapore was not represented in any of the competitions at the Jamboree as it had only one senior Scout. The Contingent leader attended the important functions at the Jamboree. By attending these functions the contingent acquired a great deal of knowledge on various aspects of Scouting.

The Scouters on their return journey attended a training course and the Reunion at Gilwell Park, England and reached Singapore on 30th September, 1963.
