Plucky Antonio Bayot

"I Congratulate You" - Chief Scout To Brave Hongkong Wolf Cub

LETTER COMMENDS ACT
"YOU UPHOLD THE GOOD NAME OF THE CUBS"

YOUNG Antonio Bayot, a Sixer of the local Wolf Cubs and a student at La Salle College, has received a letter of commendation from Lord Baden Powell of Gilwell, Chief Scout, for helping to catch a thief here last August.
   Sixer Bayot lives with his parents at No. 13, Ashley Road, Kowloon. He took part with hundreds of other youngsters yesterday in the Coronation Scouts and Guides Rally on the Football Club ground but when his turn came to be presented with the diploma recognising his courage, he could not be found. He was accordingly presented with it later by Rev. N.V.Halward, Commissioner for Scouts and Cubs.

CHIEF SCOUT'S LETTER

   The letter he received from the Chief Scouts stated:

The Boy Scouts Association,
25, Buckingham Palace Road,
London, S.W.1
9th December, 1936.

Dear Sixer Bayot,
   I want to congratulate you on a smart bit of Cub work which you did when helping to catch a thief last August.
   You showed yourself to have both eyes open and to be able to think quickly of the right thing to do and not to lose any time in carrying it out.
   In doing this you have upheld the good name of the Cubs and I congratulate you and wish you all further success as a Cub and later, I hope, as a Scout.

Best wishes,
Yours truly,
(signed) Baden Powell and Gilwell.
