Letter: Scouts' honour

Sir: Reporting on unicycle hockey, Dolly Dhingra says that the sport came to Britain in 1987 and 'nobody knows who invented it and nobody is owning up'. In fact, it evolved in the late 1960s among the Boy Scouts of the 2nd Totteridge Troop in north London where 'monocycling' was an integral part of our activities, bringing us pictorial fame in the Times on 22 December, 1969. Our hockey skills were demonstrated on Blue Peter at about the same time.

Yours faithfully,


Lowgill, Lancashire
