The Girl Guide Handbook prior to 1968
Can anyone tell me please what exactly the GG Handbook looked like prior to 1968, would help in me tracking one down if I know what it looks like. Thanks

It depends on what era you're looking for as the Handbooks are different. I have a replica of the original 1912 hamdbook to ones from the 20's, 30's and 40's.

The one before 1968 wwas called Be Prepared and was a hardback book first published in the late 1940s (not at home so I can't check)

'Be Prepared' was the one in the 1950s, the one before that was called 'Girl Guiding' (many editions, first around 1918 I think), and the very original one was "How Girls can help build up the Empire"

Which ever one was around in the 1960's, so would that be the "Be Prepared" version?
