3rd WILLIAMSTOWN SCOUT GROUP
The Troop was founded in 1924 and was originally a closed Troop attached to St Andrew’s Church in Cecil Street, Williamstown. One of the first recorded Scout Masters was a Mr Aldridge. The Troop adopted the name “St Andrew's Troop” and continued to meet at the church until 1934, when it became the 3rd Williamstown Scout Troop, an open Troop, and moved to its present location.

So, in 1935, the old bluestone Municipal chambers at 12 Thompson St, Williamstown, which had been vacant since 1919, became a Scout hall and the 3rd Williamstown Scout Troop Headquarters.
3RD WILLIAMSTOWN SCOUT HALL FROM 1935 TO APPROXIMATELY 1962 WHEN IT BURNT DOWN - UNTIL 1919, IT HAD BEEN THE ORIGINAL WILLIAMSTOWN MUNICIPAL CHAMBERS


On Saturday July 13th 1935, Mr G.W.S. Anderson, the Deputy Commissioner of Scouts for Victoria, officially opened the Troop's new headquarters in the old Municipal chambers at 12 Thompson St, Williamstown. The Group Scout Master at the time was Mr John Le Brun and the Scout Master was Mr Cliff Cook.
