This maybe true (with all respect) to an Scouting Organization where you can
sew the FDL without any requirement, but for those countries where it
represents the Promise you made to the ideals and the meaning of the FDL
(like Mexico) this is a nonsense, here it is the BIGGER ceremony of all,
only comparable to the ceremony where you get your Highest Rank.
Ladies and gentlemen, read "Scouting for Boys", "Aids to Scouting",
"Rovering to Succes", "Adventure to manhood"... those books has the real
scence of Scouting, without "policies"... plain and good Scouting |
FYI here in Mexico before you join a WB course you have to read at least
the above mentioned books.
Now, I'm seated again.
As far as I know B-P use the FDL, not a campfire.
