Not Brentford

3rd Brentford Girl Guides

Diane Elphick (Gardner) sent three photos showing the 3rd Brentford Guides in the 1950s. 'I was in 3rd Brentford Brownies and Guides and the Brentford and Chiswick Rover Ranger group and for a time ran the 5th Chiswick Cub Scout pack that met in one of the arches under Kew Bridge.'

Diane has included some names, shown under each photo:
