Senior Scouts


Baden-Powell first suggested the idea of Senior Scouts in 1917 to try and prevent the leakage of older boys from the Scout Movement and you could become a Senior Scout providing you were 15 and had gained your First Class. However by 1917 you could not leave the Troop to become a Senior until you were 17 and by the end of 1918 the term Senior Scout was dropped and replaced by Rover Scout.

It was not until 1946 that Senior Scouts was again officially recognised as the Section between Scouts and Rover Scouts.
