The Aim of Scouting Milestones

THE Scout Movement was founded in 1907 by Robert Baden-Powell, the 'Hero of Mafeking'. Its early success was meteoric and today, having celebrated our Centenary, the Scout Movement continues to grow. It has long been world's biggest youth movement with 30 million members, boys and girls, young men and women and adult leaders and administrators world-wide. Scouting Milestones attempts to chart the beginnings of the Movement from its early days, list its achievements - both individual and collective - and the personalities who devoted their lives to Scouting.

Our aim is to present original research to the widest readership possible. To this end are articles are cross-referenced, often utilising previously unpublished photographs and illustrations.

This Website is dedicated to the Scouts of the World and to all who have a interest in the founding, growth and the continuing evolution of Scouting.

Scout History is Inspirational. Let's use to inspire!
