The Patrol Method - 1938

Posted by shawn.ovenden on Jan 19 2015 - 3:50pm

Please find at the link below the book called The Patrol Method published in 1938.  This book explains the principles of the patrol method of Scouting.  The principles in this short book are as valid today as they were 100 years ago.  Also understand that some of the terminology in the book had a different meaning at the time the book was published.  As an example the book refers to a patrol as a "Gang".  At the time the book was published a "Gang" was just a group of people that liked to hangout and do things together.  Obviously the term "Gang" is not perceived to have a good meaning.
