The 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the Scouting Movement

The scouting movement was founded in Britain in 1907 by Robert Baden-Powell, a cavalry officer. He hoped to instil in boys aged 11–14 a sense of resourcefulness and a code of chivalrous behaviour. To become a scout, a boy would promise to be loyal to his country, help others and obey the Scout law. Originally a British movement, Baden-Powell’s idea took off all over the world. Today there are scouting organisations in more than 170 different countries adhering to the famous motto, ‘be prepared’.

What was happening that in the Year 2007?

The first total lunar eclipse in more than three years brought skywatchers out of their homes, Gordon Brown delivered his last budget as Chancellor of the Exchequer, the UK summer was one of the wettest on record and scientists discovered kryptonite – sadly it wasn’t green and glowing like in the Superman movies.
