Hat worn by Lord Baden Powell up for auction in Lewes





The scout hat worn by the founder of scouting, Lord Baden Powell, is expected to fetch up to £1,000 when it goes under the hammer in East Sussex.

The wide-brimmed felt hat, with leather headband and buckle, is being auctioned as part of a collection of memorabilia owned by sculptor Bryan Mickleburgh.

Other items in the collection include a white Stetson and gloves which belonged to cowboy actor Roy Rogers.

The sale is being held on Thursday at Wallis and Wallis auctioneers in Lewes.
