EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a group of Russian Scouts in exile, embarking on a bicycle trip through the picturesque landscapes of the South of France in 1938. The Scouts, members of the National Association of Russian Scouts, were forced into exile following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, which led to the dissolution of Scouting in Russia. The image shows a lively scene of young Scouts, dressed in their distinctive uniforms and hats, preparing for their adventure. They are gathered around their bicycles, adjusting seats, checking tires, and exchanging words of encouragement. The natural beauty of the French countryside serves as a stark contrast to the political upheaval that drove these boys from their homeland. The 1930s were a pivotal time for the Russian Scout movement in exile. Despite the challenges they faced, they continued to foster a sense of community and purpose through outdoor activities and educational programs. This bicycle trip, with its spirit of camaraderie and adventure, is a testament to their resilience and determination. The photograph offers a glimpse into a unique moment in history, when a group of young exiles found solace and connection in the simple pleasures of the outdoors and the camaraderie of Scouting. The image is a poignant reminder of the enduring power of community and the human spirit, even in the face of adversity.
