Baden-Powell bids farewell to England, 1940

From archival newsreel footage in
Scouts! The Rise of the World Scout Movement,
A Clear Horizons Film, Churchill Films, 1986


As he prepared to board his ship for the voyage to Africa, returning to his home in Nyeri, Kenya, B-P bid farewell as he spoke with friends, Scouts and newsreel photographers dockside:

"I wish you were going with me not only to see the place, but to settle there in that happy country. So come along in your thoughts if you cannot come yourselves and you will remember that there are crowds of your brother Scouts out there ready to welcome you."
