Abstract: We give new examples of minimal submanifolds of $ {{\mathbf{E}}^{2n + 1}}$ characterised by having their Gauss map's image lie in degenerate $ SO(3)$ orbits of $ {G_{p,2n + 1}}$, the Grassmannian of $ p$-planes in $ {{\mathbf{E}}^{2n + 1}}$ (where the action on $ {G_{p,2n + 1}}$ is induced from the irreducible $ SO(3)$ action on $ {{\mathbf{R}}^{2n + 1}}$). These submanifolds are all given explicitly in terms of holomorphic data and are linearly full in $ {{\mathbf{E}}^{2n + 1}}$.
