NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

18th May, 1912 : The founder of the British boy scout movement, Lieutenant-General Baden-Powell, spent the day with more than 1,000 scouts in camp at Sydney’ Cook’s River. The scouts worked normally as their founder moved amongst them with a critical eye and comment. General Baden-Powell is in Australia as a part of a world tour to see what the scout movement is achieving. It was growing rapidly in Russia, America, and the West Indies. He had found troops he did not know existed in Panama and visited scouts in China and Japan.

[Baden-Powell:-The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.]
