The history of the Edward Shield

See this report of the Edward Shield in 1932.


Edward Shield Winners

In 1918 Cubbing was about 18 months old when it received a Shield to be competed for annually. It was decided to follow the principle of the Gordon's Shield making the competition for General Cubcraft.

The Shield was purchased out of the balance of the funds collected to present a gift to Major Edwards on his retirement as Provincial Commissioner, and named in his honour - the Edwards Shield - as the Cape Peninsula's efficiency shield for Wolf Cubs.

The first competition did not take place until 1919 when it was won by 7th Cape Town Pack.

Glancing through the list it's fascinating to see the change in demographics. Suburbs that once had many young children and numerous Packs have now been replaced by suburbs and Groups the did not even exist in 1919.
