The reorganised branch held its first Scout Rally at the Murray Parade Ground at Garden Road (now Cheung Kong Center) on 1921-01-08. In September 1921, the Reverend George Turner Waldegrave succeeded Bowen, and the Scout Movement was firmly established in Hong Kong, though it was still small at 384 members. In the same year, Hong Kong Scouting expanded to Wolf Cub Section. Sea Scout training had been started in May 1921 with the assistance of the staff of HMS Tamar. Following its success, Waldegrave started the first Sea Scout Troop which he registered in October 1923. During his visit to Hong Kong on 1922-04-06, then-Prince of Wales, who became Edward VIII of the United Kingdom, presented his banner bearing his own coat of arms to the Hong Kong Scouts as trophy for the winner of a Colony-wide scout competition. The first Prince of Wales Banner Competition (威爾斯太子錦標賽) was held in Happy Valley on 1923-05-26. The banner stayed with the victorious troop for a year and the troop was honoured with the honorary title of Governor's Troop (督憲團).
