Lee-Anne Whitehead (Bagheera)
My name is Lee-Anne Whitehead and my Scouting name is ‘Bagheera’ or others know me as ‘Esme’(pronounced Ez-may). I live in Brinkworth, which is a small township located between Snowtown and Clare in the mid north and my husband Michael and I run a farming business. Previous to this I worked for my father in the Building/Plumbing trade, Australia Post and as an Administrative Officer in Local Government. I managed to raise two children in between this and their names are Carl and Tara.
I became involved in Lone Scouts as a parent/adult helper when Tara (current Rover Crew Leader with Lone Rovers) joined in 2003 as she wanted to become a Scout because her friends were involved in Lone Scouts. It wasn’t until 25th February 2005 that I became a Cub Scout Leader and I have enjoyed helping both members and parents go through this Section over the years. Just recently however, due to Pauline’s illness, I was asked to take on the Administration position and I have been slowly adapting to this for the last 12 months.
My hobbies are gardening, fishing, photography, cooking and crocheting but I seem to spend more time catching up with my family and friends. I love being associated with Lone Scouts as it is more of a Scouting family than just ‘Scouts’.

Meg Haensel - Fuss
Scouting has always been part of my life in some way or another, starting with my maternal grandfather in about 1909. Both my parents were involved in Scouting & Guiding as
Youth Members and Leaders. My sister & I were Brownies & Guides and I was an Assistant Guide Leader prior to Joining the Navy. Both my brothers were Cubs, Scouts & Venturers.
My first involvement with SA Lone Scouts, was early 1988 as a parent. In 1992 I became
Group Leader at Milang Scout Group and in 1996 ASL for Lones.
My three boys were all involved in Scouting and after belonging to Groups in Darwin, Sydney, Barmera and Milang, were Lone Scouts & Venturers.
Their paternal great-grandfather was SA Lones first King Scout in 1910.
I stepped down from the Lones Troop as DSL in 2013, but continue my involvement with
Lones as an Activity Leader. I am also the Editor of the Lone Trail a job I have enjoyed
doing since 1999.
Outside of Scouting, I support Graeme and his family on the Farm and his Community volunteering, as well as my own involvement in the local RSL, SA Ambulance & Emergency Ready Committee; and in my spare time, I like to read, "play" with my SLR cameras, (film & digital) and work on gathering the history of SA Lone Scouts.
I am a 4th generation Farmer, born and bred on EP.
I was a Cub, Scout, Venturer, ASL & SL with Cummins Scout Group, and a Rover through SA Branch until becoming a founding member of the SA Lone Rover Crew in 1986.
1996 - 2008 I was Rover Advisor to SA Lone Rovers; and from 2008 - present, I am an Activity Leader with Lones.
Queen's Scout & Baden Powell Awards were some of my achievements in Scouting.
Outside of farming & Scouting, I am involved in CFS, Cummins Rec Centre Committee, Cummins Show, Tennis Club, Uniting Church and the Pt. Lincoln Flying Club.
I enjoying flying in my "spare" time, having achieved my "wings" in February 1990.
I am married to Meg, whom I met through Lone Scouts.
