Anglesey is a District rich in Scouting history. From the first groups to appear in the 1900s to our recent relations with the Royals, there’s something here to pique everyone’s interest.

Legacy Scout Groups

Anglesey has played host to many Scout Groups over the years, some of which have sadly disbanded. Find out just how many Groups were on the island and where they were.

Meritorious Conduct

Many of the men who were Scouts or Leaders on the island fell in the First and Second World Wars, but some received awards for gallantry.
