Oldest Parsi Scout Group completes 100 years

One of the oldest continuously run scout groups in the city will complete 100 years on November 8. Sethna’s 18th West Bombay, whose members are mostly Zoroastrians, was founded in 1914.

Started by Rustomji Edulji Sethna, the group was initially open for membership only to Parsi boys. Post independence however, Sethna truly embraced the underlying ideals of Scout Law and allowed boys of other faiths to enrol.

Presently, the troop has 28 cubs (6-10 years) 18 Scouts (11-17 years) 18 Sea Scouts (11-17 years) 40 Rovers (18-35 years) 16 Scouters (Adult Leaders) and over 250 Old Scouts.

    Congrats to the Sethna’s 18th West Bombay Scout Group. A suggestion to start this scouts in the suburbs at Cama Park or at Jogeshwari Malcolm Baug where children from north Mumbai can take part
