  1. Can you help me identify the signature on the right? I believe these three men were the leaders for the Jamboree Jamboree service troops.pdf
  2. Sextant - the only sights they probably would want to learn would be a noon sight and taking the altitude of the north star. Neither need much calculation.
  3. I was thinking that there were 5 different 1960 event patches. Attached are some (3) of them
  4. It would seem that you could only wear it on the pocket as a temporary patch; however, using a plastic protector over the button above that pocket would work or on a jacket or vest. In 1960 they had a bunch of jubilee patches
  5. I'm quite late to respond but I thought that it was logistics. 50,000+ in and out of one spot was no easy task.
  6. I have a lot of information of his from this Jamboree trip but have not seen the actual metal...will look again.
  7. My dad and some others got hiking metal during the voyage. Pack and all the hiked from stem to Hiking metal.pdfstern for the required distance! Attached letter from James E West
  8. Have any of you seen these? The are posters found with my dad's 1924 world jamboree gear. Posters are about 11X17 on glossy paper. The notes attached are what I figured out but would love additional information.1924 Posters.pdf1924 Posters.pdf1924 Posters.pdf
  9. Thank you. I did check out the link etc. I was more looking for what you have but over water. I will use what you presented.
  10. I will be presenting the material on inland navigation to a ship. I can use various nautical publications but wondered if there is a course outline already.
  11. For Eagle92 I know that it is difficult when the very active scouters are trying to add requirements (time) to the advancement program. The lodgic is that if they add or take away from the requirements they no longer have the program set out by Scouting...they have their own program; not a "better" something just different. Your only real hope is from the scout office (district exec.) or leave the troop for a "real" BSA troop. Regards, Jim Wood
  12. Two points 1)Troops must follow Scouting policy. Some use the "show scout spirit" requirement to throw in road blocks...that is wrong and not policy. National Scouting has added requirements into Eagle to make earning it a longer process than it used to be. 2)Scouts leaving after Eagle etc. tells me the troop has to improve their program. Is it youth lead? Do older scouts have meaningful things to do? I was a 12 year old Eagle in the 50's and a Scoutmaster who worked to remove troop road blocks.(so have seen both bad sides of this topic) Hang in there it is a great program.
  13. This may sound a bit dumb, but I think of a round plastic sheet full of water which is held up by 12 lines. If you slack off on one, you will lose a little water. Jim
