Adventure Trail 2 - Scouts

Early film promoting scouting

In 1905, scouts could really help a man...

From illegal exploits to intrepid adventures, Poole has been home to valiant lads as well as wicked smugglers.

In this early film, the plucky Scouts show their tracking skills (if not their acting abilities).

The Boy Scout movement was born in Poole, with the first camp taking place in the island in the harbour in 1907.
