Campanions - Camping with the Boy Scouts

Still from 'Campanions' - Taken from 'Films of Britain 1941'

'A day with the Scouts in camp. The fun of sleeping under canvas, and cooking over log fires. Games in the clean country air. Rope-spinning and quarter-staff play - both harder than they look. Mighty appetites that call for mountains of potatoes and oceans of savoury stew. A sing-song after dark, when the crackling flames send your shadows leaping over the white tents. 2.5 million boys in 46 countries learning the ways of health and good fellowship - and all started 27 years ago when Baden-Powell formed his first troop of 25 boys.'

10 minutes. 35mm: 900ft. 16mm: 360ft.
