FOREWORD BY THE CHIEF SCOUT

ROLAND PHILIPPS wrote to me from the Front describing a bombing fight in which he had taken a leading part, and incidentally mentioned his great joy in that he had been wounded in three places, and that the three wounds served to remind him of the three points of his Scout promise.

He came home for a few days with the idea of curing his wounds without going into hospital, in the fear that, if detained there, he might miss the next fight.

It was then, while staying with me, that he more than ever impressed me with his characteristics:-

1. That the spirit of Scouting was the motive power that gave him the tremendous energy and keenness which made him a fanatic for Scout ideals.

2. The personal practice of Scouting activities made him a practical example for other Scouts to follow.

3. The brotherly helpfulness which he extended to every boy, no matter to what class he belonged, spoke to the corporate spirit in addition to that of the individual.

He was practically a living example in these three directions of the three principles included in the Scout's Promise, namely, the spirit of duty to God, the personal subjection of self as an individual to Scout Laws, and the corporate fraternal duty to others. It comes naturally, therefore, that the three books which he had written for Scouts before he was killed should be based mainly on those three Scout lines:-

"The Scout Laws," the spirit of which is the essence of Scouting.

"The Tenderfoot Tests," which are the first steps by which the individual sets to work to carry the spirit into practice.

"The Patrol System," under which, as one of a body, he carries out the duties of a Scout for the benefit of the community.

Roland Philipps was young in years when he left us for Higher Service; but already his personality and his example had influenced a large number of our men and boys, and he had infused into them that Scout spirit which is the essential motive power for successful Scout work.

Fortunately, he had set down in writing much of what was in his mind.

This Volume, therefore, embodying as it does in his own words the above three main principles, is the best possible monument that could be raised in our Brotherhood to his memory. Through it he will still live in our hearts and speak to our heads; and though his presence is lost to us, his spirit will continue among us to help us in our work and forward progress.

ROBERT BADEN-POWELL June, 1917.
