Sea Scouts – 1941 Social Guidance / Educational Documentary
A light-hearted look at the history of the Sea Scouts and the many skills its members can acquire.
‘The Sea Scouts carry on Britain’s seafaring tradition, and Captain Scott’s famous command ‘DISCOVERY’ is their training ship. In addition to Scout Law, they learn wireless telegraphy, navigation, swimming and life-saving, and the meaning of discipline, team work, resourcefulness. They thus become good scouts, good seamen and good citizens.’
