Shortly after the close of the 3rd World Jamboree at Arrowe Park in the summer of 1929, The Times of London published a collection of articles and photos from their coverage of this significant milestone of the Scouting movement. These pages are reproduced directly from this collection and provide a wonderful insight into the celebration of Scouting’s "Coming of Age."
