Kettering
Northamptonshire, England

Operated by 4th Kettering Scouts, 5th Kettering (St Michaels) Scouts, 10th Kettering Scouts and 20th Kettering Scouts. No datestamps, no FDCs. Kettering is one of a group of seven local postal services that exchange cards for each other's areas. The other posts are Barton Seagrave, Broughton, Burton Latimer, Desborough, Geddington and Rothwell, all within the same Scout District. The relative scale of these images is as they were supplied to me, but there is probably some variation that needs correcting.

Many thanks are due to David Page who supplied most of these images and those from the other posts in the group..

4th Kettering Scouts, 5th Kettering (St Michaels) Scouts, 10th Kettering Scouts and 20th Kettering Scouts are part of the Kettering District within the Scout County of Northamptonshire.
