Girl Guide Badge Meets

Although I wear two hats (I'm a Girl Guide and Boy Scout memorabilia collector) I see the history of the two organisations as being different sides of the same coin.
In my eyes the two are inseparable, we have the same founder, the same ideals and if Edwardian Britain had allowed it we would have the one organisation.
I only hope that in the near future our two organisations are enlightened enough to become one.
However, I want to know why we have numerous Scout Badge Meets (o.k. there are Girl Guide badge collectors who attend these meetings and people like myself who collect both Guide and Scout items) and yet we have no Badge Meets arranged by Girl Guides. Hopefully, a strong Guide membership within the Scout and Guide Historical Society will enable this to be rectified.
I'm also hoping that there is a female Colin Walker out there!!!
Let us know your thoughts.

Re: Girl Guide Badge Meets

Like Greg, I collect both Scout and Guide items. I also hope that more people interested in Guiding will join the Historical Society. The Centenary celebrations will hopefully generate lots of interest.

I am struggling with the image of a female Colin Walker...
