With maybe the exception of England these are hardly areas where I'd
be worried about terrorism. Just in case a terrorist gets lost in one
of these countries, even they know that attacking children will not
win them many friends for their cause.
Besides the obvious scouting tradition of traveling in uniform, you
will gain some more advantages from the uniform. You recognise
immediately who is in your group. The person who helps your lost
boy to find his way back will also recognize who belongs together;
but you wrote that yourself. The uniform will open doors for you
which you didn't even knew they exist...
Don't forget the obvious BSA tour permit, but there is also the
international custom of having international scout travel "approved"
by your international commissioner.
