Mrs Henry RymillPrint Page
A monument commemorates Mrs Henry Rymill who was the Commissioner for Brownies from 1935 to 1942.
A most valued worker has been lost to the Girl Guide movement through the death on Tuesday of Mrs. Henry Rymill and to a large number of members of the association her death will represent a personal bereavement. Always eager to advance any branch of guiding. Mrs. Rymill had specially at heart the work and welfare of the younger members, and to the greater number of the 1388 Brownies in the association she was a personal friend as well as a much-loved Commissioner. At the time of her death Mrs Rymill had been Commissioner for Brownies since 1935. As leader of the Care of Children Group of the National Emergency Squad, Mrs. Rymill`s special gifts for the training and organisation of children found additional scope, and in her position as chairman of the Council of Owls she was directly in touch with every phase of training and leadership of these "elder sisters*' of the Brownies. Regular contributions to the Brownie pages of the Guide magazine "Adventuring" had been Mrs. Rymill's especial care for a considerable time, and she was a tireless worker for the Thrift Committee.
