CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The World Scouting movement was started in 1907. In 1916 the Scout Association designated clubs for 8-10 year olds as "Wolf Cubs"; in 1966, this was changed to Boy Scouts. Scouting in the UK is organised in a devolved structure of local Troups and Packs, organised into Scout Groups, Districts, and Counties/Areas. The Holyhead and District Boy Scout Association is part of Isle of Anglesey District, Snowdonia and Anglesey Area; it was set up in 1917.
