“This movement is now established on a sound basis, the enrolment being—Scouts 36, Cubs 12.

The Cherbourg Troop attended the Easter Camp held at Nanango and were a credit to the Scout Movement and to this Settlement. A very energetic Committee applied themselves whole heartedly to the work of raising funds and a total of £335 was raised during the year. A grant of £156 was also made to the Scout Committee by the Welfare Association. The sum total of the effort was that all Scouts and Cubs have been outfitted and camping and other gear of a very high standard has been purchased.” – Annual report of the Director of Native Affairs 1958

The Cherbourg Memory is an initiative of the Rationshed Museum and brings together the photos, videos, oral history recordings, documents and other artifacts of our lives on this settlement. It a website, an archive, an educational resource, a recording project, a research data-base, a store of the people’s stories and an interactive space for comments and engagement. We encourage the people of Cherbourg, the Indigenous communities in Australia and others who have experience of our settlement to help us create a living archive of Barambah-Cherbourg. So find out a little more about the Cherbourg Memory, discover how you can Participate, or find out how you can Contribute to the development of the Cherbourg Memory.
