The Singapore Scouts

During our second week in Singapore we went to see the Singapore Scout HQ.

I visited the scout headquarters in Singapore

The reason we went to see them is because our Scout HQ had a challenge to find the Scout hut that is longest away from England. Not to brag or anything, but I think I might have the one furthest away.

The scout promise in Singapore

There are several differences from the English Scouts to the Singapore Scouts. For example, the Scout Law is different because Singapore has no Queen, the Singapore Scouts pledge to the Republic of Singapore instead.

Formation of Scout Troops in Singapore

The Singapore Scouts were formed in 1910, three years after Scouts began. When we arrived there, we were shown around by an old scout and we learned the history of the Scouts. We brought some stuff in the gift shop as well. Above is a history of the Scouts in Singapore.
