Lord Robert Baden-Powell

Well, actually it is Lord Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, if you must.  But he was a complete opposite of the pretentious dandy you may imagine upon hearing that syllable-laden name. He was a frontiersman, adept at living off the land, cunning, with self-taught survival skills.

But were you aware he also hobnobbed with kings and queens, and even met the Pope?  Do you know the story behind the Wood Badge?  Watch this slideshow about Lord Robert Baden-Powell.  Feel free to download it to show your unit.
