Now you have me interested. I'm a U.S. Citizen living in Canada. I am
currently an assistant leader in our Cub Pack. Our current Akala is an
Australian. He will be leaving in a few months for a permanent post in
Canberra, Australia. He's an L.C. in the Australian Armed Forces.
When I made my "pledge" I asked that I be allowed to drop the "duty to
the Queen" part and substitute "duty to country". After some debate (no
one had run across this in my region before?) I was permitted to make
the pledge in the manner I requested.
No one has come forward tell me that I can not take over full leadership
of our pack. I will be asking around now.
This aught to be interesting.
