Mundus Novus No.16
In 1929, the 3rd World Scout Jamboree took place at Arrow Park, UK.
This Jamboree brought together thousands of Scouts from around the world. In the closing ceremony, Robert Baden-Powell, founder of Scouting, said:
Here is the hatchet of war, of enmity, of bad feeling, which I now bury in Arrowe. From all corners of the world you came to the call of brotherhood and to Arrowe. Now I send you forth to your homelands bearing the sign of peace, good-will and fellowship to all your fellow men. From now on in Scouting the symbol of peace and goodwill is a golden arrow. Carry that arrow on and on, so that all may know of the brotherhood of men.
Only a few years had passed since the conclusion of World War I and Scouting had passed the test, had shown its vocation to work for peace. After the Great War, many wounds were left open and required the good will of thousands of young Scouts to assist in the recovery process.
Baden-Powell gave a message to those Scouts asking to bring peace and goodwill to all corners of the world in so much need.
