The Little Fella
Streatham's Most Wanted
Be Prepared


Scotland Yard's finest minds have been asked to help identify all the mug shots below. They have come up short and an appeal has been made to the wider community for help. Are they a Criminal Mastermind or a fully paid up member of the Scout or Guide movements?

Can you help? Send your answers and any additional information you have such as dates, corrections and other information relating to the activity by email to svsu50@thenearpost.com

Way back in time, last century to be precise, there was a District Wide Game (remember those?) in Streatham for the district's Scouts. It was organised by Richard Biggs. The Scouts had to identify various Scout Leaders, Venture Scouts and Rangers as they carried out normal everyday roles that you might expect to see as you wandered up and down Streatham High Road. All they had to go on was these mug shots. Who are they and what was their occupation for the Wide Game?


But Wait......There's More!!!

Well before the Wide Game represented by the Mugshots - perhaps around 1963 or 1964 - there was a similar Wide Game. This website is pleased to announce that it has secured the exclusive worldwide rights to share some pictures with you from this ground breaking event. Pictures from the early 1960s event are shown below the Mugshots.
