As an ex Peterborough Scout with relatives who used to work at Baker Perkins I was very interested to see photographs of the Great Fire in1922 showing two Rovers Scouts i.e. over the age of 17. The text suggest that it was usual for Rover Scouts to turn out in an emergency as so it was; however Baker Perkins was one of several large companies who encouraged Scouting and allowed what came to called a Crew of Rover Scouts to be set up on the premises amongst their employees.

In 1921 the crew was refererred by the Scout Association as a model of how Rover Scouting should be organised.

Yours in Scouting

Sad day today saying farewell to Dick Preston who with Margaret and James left us a wonderful legacy of memories from Baker Perkins. In true BP style we all had a lovely chat and catch up with friends at the Woodman for several hours!!
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to keep us all in touch .

Hi , i very much enjoyed the caricature of my great grandfather Josh Booth, and shared it with my aunt who said it perfectly captured his jolly but in charge manner. Thanks!

My dad worked for BAKER PERKINS in Saginaw, Michigan for around 32 years as stated in 1973 obiturary when he passed away. His name was LOUIS MEDEARIS. I do not know what year he did start working at BAKER PERKINS.. Is there anyone that knew him? Or have any photos please. I was 8 years old when he died and I never really got much memories and just a few photos of him.

Just a note from an old employee at Baker Perkins Saginaw, MI. I worked there from 1966 until 1980. I started as a summer hire while in engineering school. My first job was as a drfatsman which continued to do every summer until I got my engineering degree and then took a full-time job in 1971. I worked in various departments in the Food Machinery Division and when I left the company I was working in the R&D group.

My grandfather Henry Albert Wheeler,and uncles Wilfred W Wheeler and Sid Wheeler all made the move from Willesden to Peterboro and continued at Baker Perkins until their respective retirements. Can anyone tell me any information about them, particularly Henry Albert Wheeler who I believe had some sort of management or supervisory position. Any information will be very welcome
