Baden-Powell and Esperanto

A hundred years ago Baden-Powell wrote a booklet called ”Scouting for Boys
“. It appeared as six brochures with the price of 4 pennies each. The very
first one appeared in January 15th 1908. Each of the booklets were divided
into chapters, which received the name of ”Camp Fire Yarn“.

In the third booklet, Baden-Powell advised the scouts that they should use
the International Language Esperanto as a ”secret patrol language“.

The fact, that Baden-Powell mentions the international language is
interesting. Although his writing shows, that he hardly understand the worth
of Esperanto for the world-wide scouting movement.

”If you want to write a message that will puzzle most people, use the Morse
or semaphore letters in place of the ordinary alphabet. It will be quite
readable to any of your friends who understand signaling.

Also if you want to use a secret language in your patrol you should all set to
work to learn "
Esperanto". It is not difficult, and is taught in a little book
costing one penny. This language is being used in all countries so that you
would be able to get on it abroad now.“
(Scouting for Boys, page 202 of the original version)

In August 22th 1969, the Skolta Esperanto-Ligo officially presented the first
learning book ”Ĵamborea Lingvo“ (the Jamboree's Language) to the
members of the Scout Conference held in Helsinki, Finland. A brand new
version appeared in 1995.

”La Skolta Mondo“ is the official bulletin.

WORLD SCOUTS:
        ARE GIRLS AND BOYS WHO ENJOY FOREIGN LANGUAGES AND WANT TO HELP
PROMOTE INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING
        LEARN BASIC EXPRESSIONS IN SEVERAL LANGUAGES
        USE THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE, ESPERANTO, TO COMMUNICATE WITH
SCOUTS AROUND THE WORLD
        VALUE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND LEADERSHIP SKILLS

The Scout Movement is an excellent medium through which fellow scouts in different parts of the world can
contact one another. In scouting they can exchange experiences and ideas, and build friendships and
understanding. The more Scouts are in touch with each other, the more they know about each other's
activities and challenges in these fields, the more they will be able to bring about the kind of society and
world we all hope to see benefiting all mankind.
- Lazlo Nagy – former World Scout secretary and author of the book “25 Million Scouts”
