The Scouts and The Royal British Legion
As Britain entered the First World War on 4 August 1914, Robert Baden-Powell – founder of the Scout Movement – volunteered Scouts to support the war effort. The skills learned through Scouting proved very useful in carrying out a range of jobs, including working on farms, delivering messages, watching coastlines, fetching hospital supplies, and guarding railway lines.
Since the Scouts were founded in 1910, local Scout groups have taken part in the various volunteering roles within their local communities to support the Legion, including supporting the Poppy Appeal. This partnership will see many collaborative opportunities for the Scouts and the Legion to work together to raise vital funds and awareness for the Armed Forces community.
