Mrs. Jessie Masson wife of Dr. George Masson at the invitation of Sir George Le Hunte became a member of the Executive Committee which was formed to discuss which steps might be taken to start a Company of Girl Guides here.
Mrs. Masson worked hard and was instrumental in procuring the lands and a hut and in 1921 Headquarters appointed her a Life Deputy President. It was Miss Doris Burslem who kept the Guides Flag flying in Trinidad and saved the young movement from disintegration during the difficult period (1914 – 1918). Mrs. Masson considers that Guiding owes Mrs. Burslem a debt of gratitude for her work then.
