Memories of Marion Best Nee Todd


Marion Best nee Todd as a Girl Guide in around 1952/3.

Marion thinks they met at Monument Road and are there any other Brownies out there who remember her and where they met?

Please find attached a picture of my wonderful nan, Minnie Violet Grice, she was born on 16 November 1909 and lived in Summer Hill Street.


This, of course, is a photo of her in her girl guide’s uniform and she is approximately 15 years of age.


If anyone could give us additional information about Minnie, it would be gratefully received.
