Sad to say, none of the Cubs knew who Robert Baden-Powell was or what he had done. Sadder to say, the Boy Scout Staff had no idea either. The only one who had a clue was my son, & that was only because "I am constantly yammering about it". (Yeah, he's a real sweety, I only keep him around because he is bigger than me !)
Hopefully a few will remember my description of Robert Baden-Powell, his kudu horn, and what transpired on 08/01/1907, at 8:00 in the morning!
LOL ! Hurray for your son!
One of my kids that's been a scout for 8 years was trying to teach me something about scouting. According to him,B.P. did not founded the scout movement, what he did was start the first Troop in the USA.......
