A Conversation for Scouting: The First 100 Years


Post 1


I was a scout in Zimbabwe 1972. I had to smile as I found a diary detailing some of our camps and wonder what health and safety would have to say!! Trip to Wankie game park Rhodesia.. where we camped for a week.

" Awoke at 5am and great excitement as the spoor or a black rhino was close to our camp . Some of us were keen to follow the spoor and the scout master arranged a tracker to join us as well as another adult with an automatic in case we met Mugabes thugs. It was hot and after four hours we gave up but we all had stuck our hands in the dung to see how warm it was . On the way back Luke shot two guinea fowl which we hung for a couple of days before cooking in our oven next to the camp fire"
