SIR - Thank you for putting in my recent searches for scouting people, these have been very successful.

I am now trying to acquire information on Arthur P Coote. He had lived near St Albans since 1930 and died in 1954 aged about 60. He worked at Scout HQ in London and was Commissioner for Rover Scouts in Hertfordshire.

An extraordinary man with a Foreign Office background in the Sudan and practical skills such as knotting, sketching, dramatics, cricket, tennis and a nature lover.

I would be grateful if I could be put in contact with his descendants.
