I don't get lost in the hills ehhm - just mislaid
I also recall a story in UK Scouting Magazine some years ago about a group
of Scouts in a Concentration Camp. Apparently they met secretly, as one
would, after work details. The exact details of the story are lost to me.
however it is clear that they suffered.
Also the Channel Islands were occupied by the Nazis and Scouts continued to
meet in secret.
As for BP being a spy well not quite. however when in India as a young
officer he did carry out recces of various hostile areas. His maps were
dummied up as water colour paintings. I think I am right in saying that BP
at the age (I think) of 43 was the youngest Inspector General of Cavalry in
the British Army.
The are only my recollections of past readings so please no flames!
I am sure someone in the Group will fill in the details for us!
