Article from trekwear on display at Beck Isle

An exhibition dedicated to the history of the Scouting movement has gone on show at a museum in Yorkshire.

Beck Isle Museum in Pickering will be showing a number of items showcasing over 100 years of Scout history including more than 50 badges, reports the York Press.

Richard Bowman, who put the collection together, is a member of the 1st Vale of Pickering Scout Group and used the local faction as a basis for looking at the entire organisation.

He told the news provider: "I actually found out that the group was founded in 1910 and the cub pack was founded in 1914 which makes use of one of the first Cub packs."

Mr Bowman has also written a book about the history of his Scout Group, which accompanies the exhibition.

Robert Baden-Powell founded the Scout movement in 1907, which has always had an emphasis on outdoor activities and practical skills with those involved collecting badges to prove their proficiency in these tasks.ADNFCR-2054-ID-801292947-ADNFCR
