Elwood Memorial Scout HallPrint Page Print this page

Elwood  Memorial Scout Hall has been the home of the 3rd St Kilda Scout Group since 1957. Established in 1924, this Jewish scout group held its first meetings in the St Kilda Synagogue. It then moved to three old train carriages in the Montefiore Homes' grounds before settling in Avoca Avenue. The group became known as 'Danglow's Own' after its years of association with prominent Rabbi Jacob Danglow.

A memorial plaque on a brick wall is dedicated to those who made the supreme sacrifice while a smaller plaque contains a quote from Baden Powell surrounded by the names of the fallen.
