BADEN POWELL'S PEACE APPEAL AT SCOUT JAMBOREE
Vogelenzang, Holland, Today.
A moving appeal for peace and goodwill by Lord Baden Powell, Chief of the Boy Scout Movement, brought to an end the fifth World Jamboree, when addressing 28,000 boys scouts.
Lord Baden Powell, who is in his 81st year, said the time had come for him to say goodbye to some of them, whom he would never meet again.
He urged the boys to apply the Scout Laws which would help to bring about God's reign and peace and goodwill.
An impressive silence prevailed when Lord Baden Powell, greatly moved concluded with "To all Scouts goodbye and God bless you all." - Reuter.
