  • Description

    THAILAND'S BOY SCOUTS ON JULY 1 CELEBRATED THE FIFTY-SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SCOUTING IN THE COUNTRY.

    JAMBOREES WERE CONDUCTED THROUGHOUT THE NATION WITH THE SCOUTS PARTICIPATING IN AN OATH OF LOYALTY TO HIS MAJESTY, KING BHUMIPOL ADULAYDEJ.

    HIGHLIGHT OF THE ANNIVERSARY WAS THE PROGRAMME IN WHICH FIVE THOUSAND BOY SCOUTS PARTICIPATED BEFORE THEIR MAJESTIES AT THE NATIONAL STADIUM.

    THEIR MAJESTIES, KING ADULAYDEJ AND QUEEN SIRIKIT, WERE GREETED ON ARRIVAL BY AN HONOUR GUARD OF BOY SCOUTS FROM THE VARIOUS PROVINCES, WHILE THE ROYAL ANTHEM WAS BEING PLAYED.

    AMONG THE SCOUTS WAS 11-YEAR-OLD CROWN PRINCE VAJIRALONGKORN, WHO HEADED HIS SCHOOL UNIT AS A RESERVED BOY SCOUT.

    LATER, BOY SCOUTS AND CUB SCOUTS IN THEIR PATROL UNITS PASSED IN REVIEW BEFORE THEIR MAJESTIES IN A GRAND PARADE.

    FOLLOWING THE PARADE, THERE WERE FIELD DEMONSTRATIONS BY VARIOUS SCOUTS UNITS, OPENING WITH "GRAND HOWL GAMES". SCOUTS ERECTED TENTS, FIRST AID DEMONSTRATIONS AND BUILT A PIONEERING PROJECT BRIDGE.
