Major Frederick Russell Burnham, D.S.O. Like B-P, Burnham was military
scout. After serving together in Matableleland in 1896, he became a
lifelong friend and admirer of Baden-Powell.
In his book <italic>Taking Chances,</italic> 1944, he describes that
first meeting when he and B-P scouted in the Matopo Hills.
He also describes a little known and interesting historical event, the
dedication of Mount Baden-Powell in the Sierras in 1931.
By the way, if anyone out there has any information on Mount
Baden-Powell, I would appreciate hearing from you.
