  • Short Summary

    Lord Baden-Powell inspects large gathering of Boy Scouts in the North of England.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Gosforth. Beloved 'B.P.' - 'The Ever Young'. Lord Baden-Powell reviews thousands of Boy Scouts from all parts of the Northern Counties."

    Gosforth, Cumbria or Tyne and Wear (there are two Gosforths)

    Lord Baden-Powell walks up path with large number of Scouts and leaders. He greets the men gathered at the top of the hill.

    BP walks over a wooden bridge over a stream (presumably made by boy scouts) he jumps up and down to test it.

    BP is introduced to young Cub Scout. He gives the Scout salute and they shake hands in the traditional scouting fashion, with their left hands. BP opens the door to a wooden building.

    Baden-Powell and other Scouters (all in uniform with shorts) walk towards camera saluting gathered Boy Scouts.

    BP stands on a small podium saluting as Scouts march past.
