Remembering the past, embracing the future
Have you ever wondered what Scouts in the past wore, thought or did? The Scouts Heritage Collection holds over 250,000 photographs, diaries, letters and objects which tell the story of over 100 years of Scouting activities.
This mass of material illustrates the story of Scouting from its earliest days as a concept developed from Lord Baden Powell’s bestseller ‘Scouting for Boys’. The Collection documents the changes the movement has undergone and demonstrates the ways in which Scouting has built on Lord Baden Powell’s original idea to stay as relevant and engaging for young people as it was back in 1908.
