Very hard to find such a
comprehensive easy to follow guide to what Basic Scouting

Why Scout Movement?
Baden-Powell said: "Scouting is a movement because it
keeps on moving forward.

B-P last message to Scouts
B-P's voice speaking to Scouts
Why 'PEN-KNIFE'? asked a
young Scout. Its not a pen.
It was during a session in
June 2005 teaching Scouts about the safe use of Knife, Axe and Bowsaw that James, a young Scout, popped
this question, on showing them a Swiss penknife.
The answer is that originally a small knife was employed to shape a feather (Latin
name PENNA) into a quill, cutting a nib for writing. The name stuck and the small knives
became a household item, especially in the Scout Movement.
It pays to be inquisitive!
