  • Description

    Fiji has been host to an International Scout Jamboree -- the first ever to have been held in the Islands. The Jamboree was attended by more than three thousand Scouts and Guides from Fiji, Taiwan, New Zealand, Japan, Western Samoa and Australia.

    Ratu Sir George Cakobau, governor General and Chief Scout of Eiji, took the Salute at the march-past and watched a display of survival training. He expressed the hope that the Scouts and Guides would help to end world tensions trough their own example of friendship with people of other countries. He also described some of the world-wide activities of the Scouting movement.

    Flags at the Jamboree flew at half-mast as a sign of respect for the late new Zealand Prime Minister, mr. Norman Kirk.
