So I was browsing through the book, World Scouting; Educating for Global Citizenship, a history of the WOSM movement. It was interesting that the author really rips the BSA for their discriminatory…Continue
"If your heart is in it then how can it be "fake" scouting?
It does not mater the association nor the name, if it follows the spirit of Baden Powell and the program is delivered with a palpable enthusiasm which inspires it's youth to…"
I'd be happy to have a discussion with you on the matter. This particular discussion is not the appropriate place for that, though. Just send me an email so we won't hijack this discussion, though...

Franco did ban Scouting and imprisoned Scoutmasters, just as Hitler did and Pope Pius XII banned Italy's Catholic Scouting association in order to get Mussolini's agreement tot he Lateran Treaty. Scouting, as we know it, was illegal…"
Please listen carefully, what I'm saying is if Franco banded scouting, except for Falange scouts(?). He failed and failed badly. That's all I have to say on it. Even Hitler failed in banding all scouting movements. Scouts will…"
Hard to believe your from a southern state and never heard the term that dog won't hunt. Oh well difference states difference terms.
I agree on your last point though and hope Eduard can see other scout programs.
"Jim,I am not sure why my birthplace is an issue. For your information, I was born below the Mason-Dixon line and have lived all my live in a former Confederate state.
If you will refer to my previous posts, I think I explained the issue of Falange…"
I can see you are from north of the Mason-Dixon line so let me reword my comment, if Franco band all scout groups he did a poor job of enforcing it. My first encounter with Spanish scouts was in 1965 while my father was stationed in…"
"David - I have to agree, while we want to stay true to BP's original mission, as has been discussed elsewhere in this forum, he was still man of his time and thus unable to fully anticipate what could/would happen over the course of a…"
No offense taken. From my recollection, Franco banned all Boy Scouts and imprisoned Scout Leaders after the Civil War. By the late 60s, a Catholic scouting organization (Movimiento Scout Catolico) sprang up and there were public sightings of…"
I hope this won't offend but I met and camped with many Spanish scouts in the 60's, 70's and 80's and they were no different than any other scouts at the camps I attended. So the Franco Falange dog don't…"
If you get a few minutes, please post a little bit about yourself and your reasons for joining us in the Introductions topic in the Forum. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the program or the site. I'm here to help!
Yours in Traditional Scouting,

"That is correct. The availability at local surplus stores and their typical sale pricing, as well as the large shipping charges to/from the QM Store, made them impractical to stock. Other options will be investigated in the short term, with the long…"
"My understanding is that when Hudson stocked hats, a high percentage were returned because they did not fit quite right, and the end result was that QM consistently lost money on them. I believe that this will be revisited in light of an…"
Alright so school me here, where did the campaign hat go?Albeit, I wear a Stratton now, however I did initially buy a Rothco when I first joined - still have it (will probably hand it down to my daughter when she leaps up to pathfinding).We're no…See More
