Did you know?

  • There are over 30 million Scouts in the world.
  • We hold the Guinness World Record for the largest youth organisation!
  • 1 in 3 Scouts is a girl.
  • 1 in 50 Scouts will use their first aid skills to save a life.
  • Baden-Powell is the only person to be Chief Scout of the World.
  • The Scout Law used to have 10 parts.
  • At the Jamboree in 2007 all Scout countries were represented. There were 32,000 participants and 8,000 staff, together with over 60,000 day visitors
  • Do your best has been unchanged since Scouting began.
  • Dyb-Dyb-Dyb, Dob-Dob-Dob meant Do Your Best and Do Our Best. This was used by the Cubs until 1967 and has not been used since then!
  • The term Boy Scouts also stopped being used in 1967.
  • The Scout sign (three fingers held up and thumb over the little finger) is to show the three parts of the Scout promise: to do our duty to God, The Queen and to help other people.
  • The world membership badge is an arrow head and was taken from the old maps that had the arrow pointing north. Baden-Powell used this arrow head as a badge to point the true direction. On the same badge you will see two stars which each have five points which was to show the (old) 10-part Scout Law.
  • The three parts of the arrowhead are also to show the same as the Scout sign
