Scouting Centenary 2007
2007 was the 100th anniversary of the founding of scouting. The year was marked by a large number of special events and media coverage and in amongst all the thoughts and comments about the centenary was the following on BBC South Today:
"It was a great honour to be promised to go God and the Queen, with my left hand touching the flag of the United Kingdom, me a little 8 year old South American rain forest Caribbean indian. Now I'm 46 years old, I always carry with me the basics and principles taught in my Boy Scout Den, "1st Sunningdale" of Berks. Honour, moral, good manners and your daily good deed, which I do still today with the same joy as I did when I was in 1st Sunningdale. SCOUTS DO YOU BEST, WE WILL DO OUR BEST. Scouts of today, remember your promise, "...to do my duty, to my best..." To God and the Queen. From Venezuela, Continental Caribbean and South America, Adios. Pedro Salinas, Yello Six Sixer"Pedro Salinas
