1983 – Royal Albert Hall Display

The centenary year Royal Albert Hall Display takes place, with nearly 10,000 boys taking part.

Enfield Battalion puts on an item about the formation of the Scouts as a result of the Brownsea Island Camp in 1907. The item is called “We have started something”. The 3rd Enfield also takes part in the London Bugle Band soloists in the finale. Steven Wakeford sings a solo of the Anchor Song.

West Kent Battalion (mainly 2nd West Kent and 14th West Kent) performs an item which is a reconstruction of the first Daily Telegraph Shield competition, in which they salute the 3rd Enfield as the first winners of the competition in 1906 as well as the thousands of other boys who had taken part in the competition since.
