Inspection Of Caithness Boy Scouts By Sir R. Baden Powell

This photograph shows Sir Robert Baden-Powell inspecting a large gathering of boy scouts whilst on a visit to Caithness in the 1920s.

On his return from the South African War in 1903, Baden-Powell found that a military training manual he had written, "Aids to Scouting", had become popular with teachers and youth organisations. He wrote the book to make it appeal to younger readers and "Scouting for Boys" was eventually published in 1908. The scouting movement grew very quickly. In 1910, the first Scout rally, held at The Crystal Palace in London, attracted 10,000 boys as well as a number of girls.
