Bombardment of Scarborough England December 16th, 1914

The Scouts on duty at the wireless station raced around Scarborough delivering messages. The Scouts at the railway station assisted the railway personnel in crowd control and may have given first aid to distressed passenger’s cuts and bruises. On the cliff top at the Coast Guard Station there was much activity. It was targeted by the German gunners and came under heavy attack. Shell after shell exploded. There were fatalities. A Coastguard man was killed when a shell exploded near to where he was standing. Several soldiers were wounded. Roy Miller was the Scout on duty at the time. He was hit by shrapnel and sustained leg injuries. He stayed at the coast guard station throughout the attack. Only when the shelling stopped did he leave for hospital.

Battle of Jutland May 13th, 1916

Scout John Travers Cornwell who was mortally wounded early in the action, but nevertheless remained standing alone at a most exposed post, quietly awaiting orders till the end of the action, with the gun’s crew dead and wounded around him. He was under 16 years old. On November 16th, 1916, Cornwell’s mother received the Victoria Cross from King George V at Buckingham Palace.

Admiral Lord Beresford wrote

Cornwall has set an example of devotion to duty which will be an inspiration to British boys for all time. It will not fall to the lot of every boy to prove so devotedly his obedience, discipline, and self-sacrifice; but every boy can endeavour to live up to his example by practising discipline and being obedient in small things. In this way character is formed, and we are able – when a crisis arises and there are big things to be done – to do them.

Messengers of Peace

In 1920, just two years after the most terrible war the world had ever known, 8,000 Scouts from 34 countries came together for the first world jamboree. At the closing ceremony, Scouting founder Robert Baden-Powell called on participants to carry the spirit of the jamboree home “so that we may help to develop peace and happiness in the world and goodwill among all Scouts.”
The Scouts of the world have been answering that call for more than 90 years.Today, Scouts in dozens of countries are working for peace by solving conflicts in their schools, building links between divided communities, teaching their peers about health and wellness, and repairing environmental damage. To recognize their efforts and to inspire more young men and women to help Scouting create a better world in 2011 the World Scout Committee has launched the Messengers of Peace initiative [More]
