Scout's Day

"Be prepared!"

~ Boy Scout Motto

Worldwide in nearly all Scout associations, Founders' Day is celebrated on the 22nd of February, the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting.

The 1st Glasgow Scout Group has a claim to be the first Scottish Scout Troop, as it holds a registration certificate dated 26 January 1908.

 

From the official register:

"This count was taken from a kilt bought from the Scottish Scout Shop in Edinburgh in 1922. Designed by Chief Commissioner of the Scout Association of Scotland, Lord Glentanar who was George Coats of Paisley thread-making fame. It was for the use of Scouts having no tartan of their own or for Scout troops requiring a uniform tartan.  The tartan is based on Black Watch in three shades of grey.  Although, It didn't achieve great popularity, in 1989 a variation in which light grey changed to white was marketed as 'Dress Grey Watch'."
