BACK to BASICS appeared in Scouting Magazine many years ago as a pullout supplement and is worth its weight in gold.

Very hard to find such a comprehensive easy to follow guide to what Basic Scouting knowledge is all about.

 In the words of John Sweet, author of the book Scout Pioneering, 
" these are the kind of skills which, if we are not careful, will slip unnoticed down the cracks in the pavement of Life. "

Why Scout Movement?
Baden-Powell said: "Scouting is a movement because it keeps on moving forward. 
If it stops moving it becomes an organisation and is no longer Scouting!"


B-P last message to Scouts

Why 'PEN-KNIFE'? asked a young Scout. Its not a pen.
quill.jpg (2023 bytes)
    swiss-knife.jpg (1990 bytes)
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!
