– By Geoff Burrowes

In today’s world he would probably be called an imperialist and an agent and a defendant of imperialism. He was, in fact a soldier who was an original thinker, one prepared to adopt his enemy’s strategies and the lessons of the people indigenous to the region.

His name was Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scout Movement.             

He was born in 1857. He joined the British Army after school and fought in India and Africa.          Continue reading
