Sea Scouts - Youth Carries on a Great Tradition

Still from 'Sea Scouts' - Taken from 'Films of Britain 1942-43'
'For four hundred years Englishmen have gone forth to seek new lands beyond the sea: Drake, Hawkins, Cook, Clive, Livingstone, Scot... great sea captains, adventurers, explorers, pioneers laying the broad foundations of a brotherhood of free peoples, the British Commonwealth of Nations. To-day, the Sea Scouts carry on the seafaring tradition, and it is fitting that Captain Scott's famous command Discovery should be their training ship. There they learn swimming, life-saving, boat-building, seamanship, morse-telegraphy, signalling - all the lore of the sea.' [1]
