In 1929, at an International Camp, an exchange of gifts was made between the Diehards and a contingent of Scouts from Rhodesia.
The picture shows Les Kirby receiving a carved wooden Totem Pole topped with a Wolf head in exchange for a Union Flag.
The Totem Pole was donated by LJK to the District of St Marylebone to use as a trophy for an annual Cub Scout competition.
Every year the District held an inter Cub Pack competition for the Totem Pole. A working Six from each Cub Pack would compete over a Saturday afternoon in crafts, skills and games.
The Diehards have won this on a number of occasions and the recipients are engraved on the Pole which is on view in the Leader Cabin at the Mansergh.
