Peterborough Sea Rangers (1949)

A series of shots showing the Peterborough SRS Gallant branch of the Sea Rangers including a parade along Broadway in 1949.

The Sea Rangers began to appear in the early 1920s as a nautical wing of the Girl Guides Association and were well established across the UK by the time of WW2 at which point many became WRENS.

Although the Guides dropped the Sea Rangers wing in 1973, the Sea Rangers Association established themselves and continue to operate today.
