EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to Buckinghamshire in 1913, where a group of men in uniform gather proudly in front of a traditional tipi. The men are scout leaders, distinguished by their chainmail epaulettes, reminiscent of the protective gear worn by British soldiers during active service in Sudan (1898) and the Boer War (1899-1902). These epaulettes were designed to safeguard against sword blows to the shoulder. The Boy Scouts Association, founded just three years prior by Robert Baden-Powell, brought together these dedicated individuals who believed in instilling values such as leadership and outdoor exploration into young boys' lives. Among them was Lieutenant General Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell himself, known for his remarkable contributions as a military leader. In this group portrait captured with precision and artistry, we witness an array of expressions on the faces of these brave men. Their hats sit proudly atop their heads while they stand tall with an air of confidence. It is evident that they embrace both tradition and progressiveness through their unique attire - blending military uniforms with elements inspired by nature. As we delve into this snapshot frozen in time, it serves as a reminder not only of the rich history behind scouting but also showcases the power that unity can bring when driven towards noble causes.
