Track 18 Joining the Scouts

Credit line: Peter Moorey talks about joining the Scouts as a boy.


Interviewee: I joined the Cubs at 9 years of age in 1940, and then I went up into the Scouts in 1942 and this is where I learnt tracking, camping, First Aid, bridge building, estimating and cooking and many other activities that Baden–Powell had laid down for the Scouts to take part.
