The History of Sea Scouting 

in the York-Adams Area Council Squadron

The traditional York-Adams Area Council Sea Scout Squadron identity strip for white uniforms. 

SSS YORKSHIRE - Sea Scout Ship 25 is in the process of writing the History of the York-Adams Area Council Sea Scout Squadron.  It is a work in progress.  So that the efforts to date may be easily reviewed, we are making available here in Adobe Acrobat PDF format what has been completed so far.  Each chapter is available in a separate PDF file so you can focus on your area of interest and not waste time downloading what doesn't appeal to you.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view .PDF files.  If you do not already have it, you can get your free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader here.  acrobatlogo2.gif

Suggestions for additions, deletions, and corrections are welcome and may be addressed to me at skipper@ship25bsa.org.
