I am pleased to announce a new and important Jamboree series on the Pine
Tree Web (http://www.pinetreeweb.com).
In the summer of 1937, the Scouts of the world gathered together at
Vogelenzang, the Netherlands, for the Fifth World Jamboree. Already the
storm clouds of war were forming. It was to be the last such gathering for
ten years. It was also B-P's last jamboree. Collected together are over 50
historic photographs as well as an account of the Jamboree written by James
E. West, Chief Scout Executive and leader of the American Contingent.
Other Jamboree series on the Pine Tree Web cover the four earlier Jamborees:
