He is very proud when he puts his uniform and necktie on for the weekly meetings and but most of all he enjoys trying to earn his new badges .
Little Scout loved completing his Camping badge last Summer and was very proud when he was awarded his camping tent medallion which is pinned to his Scouting jumper.
This cute and adorable looking little bear dates to C1950 and measures just 9" in height.
He is rather an unusual little bear with his protruding little tummy and his sticking up ears on the top of his head .
Little Scouts arm and leg joints are fixed by their original thread type joints which make them swing and his neck is unjointed so does not turn at all.
Scout has retained his original black nose and mouth stitching and has four black claw stitches to each foot.
Little Scout is hoping to move to a new platoon very soon and comes wearing his Scouting jumper and neck ribbon and pinned to his chest is his little camping tent award.

She has such a kind an pleasant nature and you can tell this just by looking at her endearing looks I am quite sure.
Miss Charlotte Russe is full of prettiness and kindness and likes to dress in her best white lace dresses which she always takes a pride in freshly laundered and pressed and smelling of clean air and fresh flowers not forgetting either a pretty lace head bow with a silk flower picked from her ribbon box.
This lovely old bear has certainly been a well loved and treasured old bear and has had various careful and neat repairs to her which is not surprising when you have been a well treasured and loved old bear in a family.
She measures 23" in height and is quite a straight and long bodied old bear with a slight small hump at the back of her neck.
Her muzzle are has been very neatly and expertly darned even though she has lost her nose and mouth stitching many moons ago.
I believe that her ears are possible replacements too but suit her colouring and her perfectly .
Her paw pads have all been neatly recovered again in felt .
Her eyes appear to be later glass replacements and suit her well.
She has three black claw stitches on her right paw but has lost all of them on her left paw and she has just retained one on her left foot.
Charlotte has had some small sewing stitches around the wrist of her left paw at the front this has been very neatly executed and is quite hard to see .
Charlotte is a five way jointed old bear and all her joints turn and move well for her .
She has also had some repair stitches to the top left side of her neck again beautifully and neatly stitched and very hard to see really,
On her left ankle at the front a little inset has been neatly added .
After saying about all of her little misdemeanours she is still without a doubt a beautiful endearing looking old bear .
She hopes she is tugging at your heart and will come dressed in her antique white cotton dress with lace and flower head bow and a pretty antique style necklet on rose pink silk ribbon .

He dates to before 1920 and is a lovely little early German bear with his original small black wooden shoe button eyes.
Little Soldier Woeful measures just 10" in height bless him and is stuffed throughout with wood wool and War time memories!
He is a five-way jointed little bear and his head and neck joint are secure and move and turn well for him as do both of his arms and his left leg but as previously mentioned earlier his right leg joint needs some attention if desired but is still held on securely .
Soldier Woeful does indeed look a little sorry for him self these days and is praying that he will find a loving home for Old soldier bears so he can remissness and share his war stories with them as many of his old pals have sadly gone and left him all alone!
Soldier Woeful has five black claw stitches to each foot and he has four to each paw .
His paw and foot pads are all covered in their original felt although they do have some holes in them all revealing a glimpse of some of the wood wool beneath in parts but this is held firmly and securely and is not causing any concerns to this little old bear.
Should you have fallen in love with this wonderful early little old bear he comes with fragments of an old WW1 French flag around his neck and carrying a tiny old silk Union jack flag and of course his WW1 Bamforth song card that you can see in the background entitled "WHEN YOU COME HOME" and a special Once upon a time bears CASUALTY OF WAR tag for you to fill in for him.
