Handcross Girl Guides in camp (2 of 4)

Handcross Girl Guides seemed to have acquired a dog and a horse, but it is not clear if they also sleep in the bell tents!
Further to picture #1767, I think that is probably Win Greenfield (née Faulkner) on the extreme right, with Rosina Wilkinson (née Rapley) standing beside her.
The Girl Guide movement was formed in 1910 by Lord Baden-Powell’s sister, Agnes, following a Boy Scout rally in the previous year during which a group of girls gatecrashed the gathering asking for “something for girls too”.
The Large Version shows a close up.
