St.Joseph's College Scout Troop


During my school time Mr. Dharmalingam was
Our scout master. Its a good rememberance it 60 to 69.
Glad to see 21st Colombo is still thriving. I have fond memories of my Scouting and Rover Scout days. I was a Member of the inaugural Scout Troop about 1950. The Scoutmaster was Francis Sellaway Naidu. Fr. H Schram was the Chaplain and the live-wire in the formation the running of the Troop. Once we hiked up to Pidurutalagala and Fr Schram said Mass at sunrise at the top, during our Annual Camp at Nuwara Eliya.
My best Wishes and Blessings for your future.
Our Clarion Call at the time was:
"Boomalaka, Boomalka, Bowow Wow
Chumalaka, Chumalaka Chow Chow Chow.
Boomalaka, Chumalaka who are we.
21st Colombo SJC."
