The first Scout Troop was formed at 1st Weston Green on the 4th May 1944.

Wolf Cubs had started 2 years prior to this and now the scout troop was required for the oldest Wolf Cubs to progress.

The Troop started with those boys ready to 'come-up' form Cubs for 3 months before being open to all comers.

During this stage of the Troops formation "Skipper" Joyce, who was also the GSM of the 4th Ashford B.P.Scouts was responsible for leading the Troop members to their Tenderfoot Badge.
