    I almost got caught down south, one of the guys I worked with needed help or his pack would have to close, but my discharge came through rather quickly so I couldn't commit to it.

    Hi,

    I'm Jonathan

    I'm an Explorer Scout with Nomad ESU in Willesden, i started off as Cub at the 23rd Willesden (they didn't have a Beaver colony back then), i then moved up to Scouts there, and then finally on to Explorers. I've missed all of the Chief Scout's awards so far, so i'm doing my Platinum at the moment, as well as my DoE bronze. I'm hoping to at least get Diamond too, but my real aim is the Queen Scout's award!

    I'm a young leader with my old Scout troop at the 23rd, and i'm also part of the GLMW Jamboree Contingent!

    Oops!, I should introduce myself, my name is Gary and I'm an Assistant Explorer Leader with Thanet Sea Explorer Unit. I returned to scouting after an 8yr break and found they'd changed everything, Senior and Rover Scouts had returned allbeit with different names. I'm just glad they hadn't bought back shorts 'cos I really haven't got the legs for them.

    Greetings from the sunny Isle of Man.

    My name's Mark and I'm the Leader for 5th Douglas Beaver Scouts.

    Unlike many above, prior to stepping into the breach 18 months ago I had no experience of Scouting other than a couple of weeks in Cubs back in the UK.

    My connection began when I wanted my son to join up and my nearest group happened on the lookout for an intelligent, handsome, child friendly, patient and witty person to initially help with the running with a view to taking over the reigns. Needless to say, I failed on all fronts... but hey, they still took me on

    I found Escouts through a fellow leader with whom I was discussing the updating of the 5th Douglas website (Hi Paul) so here I am, a relative newbie in scouting looking forward to many years service to the uniform and beliefs.

    The Purpose of Scouting is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

    Did they get you with the "It's only a couple of hours a week" line?

    Remember; Some people are like "Slinky's". Worthless, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    Thank you.

    The Island is a beautiful place with lots of places to camp and hike. The natives are quite friendly too
