Description:Robert Baden-Powell set up the scouting movement in 1908 after a successful camp teaching boys important skills, and releasing a book called ‘Scouting for Boys’. By the end of 1908, there were 60,000 scouts.

All the boys posing in this image are engaged in different Scout activities such as playing a bugle, making a fire, peeling potatoes and having a wash from a bucket!

The photographer, Fred Everitt lived in Clayton, Newcastle-under-Lyme. We think he may have been one of the Scout leaders.
