Founder painting given to Scout Movement
4 May 2019
A large painting of Baden Powell has been given to the Scout Movement at a ceremony at Catterick Garrison. The picture has been in the possession of the Army at Catterick Garrision for the last 45 years, which Baden Powell founded along with the Scouts. Due to a reorganisation, Colonel Andy Hadfield felt the painting should now reside with the Scouts because of its historic importance.
It shows Baden Powell in his military uniform.
A contingent of Scout and Guide representatives from Richmondshire lead by the Regional Commissioner, Ian Hill, was presented with the painting by Col Hadfield. It has now be transported to London and stored at Scout Headquarters until it can be displayed in a museum.
