Re - Mike Maricle's book list
I dont think that Robert Baden Powell wrote a book called Sea Scouting for Boys.
I had never heard of it and I checked with a couple of friends in Britain also.
I have a copy of Handbook for Crew Leaders, Carl D.Lane, BSA, 1st Edition 1941,
second printing 1942.
Other Sea Scout books in English include -
United Kingdom -
Sea Scouting and Seamanship for Boys, W. Baden-Powell,
(James Brown & Son, Glasgow, 1912)
- reprinted (Brown Son & Ferguson, Glasgow, 1936)
Seamanship for Scouts, Lt.Cdr.H.W.Stuart Garnett,
(Wells Gardner, Darton & Co., Redhill, Surrey, 1912)
- 3rd Edition, revised by Tom Browne, 1952
Sea Scout Badge Book - (Brown, Son & Ferguson, early 1930s)
Sea Scout Handbook, (Boy Scouts Association, U.K.)
- no date, probably mid 1930s.
