Its in the motto " Be Prepared" I would say that
suggests that the goal is to help young scouts Boy & Girl prepare for their
future adult life's. That was certainly the goal that Lord Baden Powell had
in mind. Please remember that the founding Scout was first and above all
else a Soldier,who had witnessed untold slaughter on the battlefield and
felt that young boys need to be made better prepared so that they my
survive future battles of the Nation.
Personally, I should like to see all Boy Scouts drilled.
I look upon the Movement as a further savings of the situation
for the nation in the future, and that it will pave the way
directly for its national service.
