Who Was BP?

 

Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell, (22 February 1857 – 08 January 1941), also known as B-P or Lord Baden-Powell, was a Lieutenant-General in the British Army; writer; founder of the Scout Movement and 1st Chief Scout of The Boy Scouts Association.

 

In 1903, Baden-Powell found that his military training manual, Aids to Scouting, had become a best seller, and was being used by teachers and youth organisations. Following his involvement in the Boys' Brigade as Brigade Secretary and Officer in charge of its scouting section, and with encouragement from his friend; William Alexander Smith, Baden-Powell decided to re-write Aids to Scouting to suit a youth readership. In August 1907 he held a camp on Brownsea Island, to test out his ideas. About twenty boys attended: eight from local Boys' Brigade companies, and about twelve public school boys, mostly sons of his friends.

 

After that, boys and girls spontaneously formed Scout troops and thus the Scouting Movement had begun, first as a national association, but soon an international phenomenon.

 

As a tribute to his legacy, the 169th Glen Allan Scout Group celebrates Lord B-P's Birthday every February with a banquet gathering.
