Norman - just a small point of correction ... I'm actually a Pack Helper
with a Cub Scout Pack in Greenwich, London. I was an Air scout Leader but
the troop closed a few years ago as a result of our losing the use of the
school where we met due to public expenditure cuts.
I also help out with BSA troop 401 at the American School in London, UK
and in 91 had the opportunity to attend the BSA Wood Badge course
organised by the Last Frontier Council, OK,USA at Philmont, having
previously taken my UK Scout/VS course at Gilwell in 1977!
We just call our organisation The Scout Association - because the idea
originated over here, I suppose, just like weare the only country not to
put the country name on our postage stamps ...
