Sea Scouts on Parade....

 

The Sea Scouts have always taken part in a wide range of parades around town but, to date, we have just one photo...

 

 

This may well date from the 1950s as it certainly captures a background that matches that period!

The scouts are taking a salute and I presume that the dignitaries are gathered out of shot - on the concourse of the old Regal cinema (now Somerfield supermarket). 

The building on the right is Davey's store - shrouded in canvas blinds and with wooden gates across the twin entrances. The shop sold cloth, linen, curtains, bedding and womenswear. It even had a small menswear shop next door. In fact you can just about make out the "Daveys" sign  over the window of  the men's "annex".

The Davey's menswear department actually had a connection with the Sea Scouts. Scoutmaster, Ken Treliving, managed the men's department for many years. The department moved to Harbour Street some time around the 1960s and Ken eventually assumed ownership.
