In a comment to last weeks' Sepia Saturday call, Colleen G. Brown Pasquale of Leaves and Branches pointed out that this week marked the 100th anniversary of the girl scout movement and the same anniversary of the boy scout movement took place recently. Such an important milestone calls for a celebration so we are celebrating this week on Sepia Saturday with the theme "Scouts". You can extend the theme in any direction you want to - I seem to recall I have a picture of my father in the Boys' Brigade and therefore my particular extension will be inter-denominational - and you can always ignore the theme and post an old picture of choice if you would like to. Whatever you decide, be prepared to post your post and signal it by adding a link to the list below.
My archive picture dates back to 1914 and comes from the Flickr Commons collection of the National Library of Ireland. It is entitled "Fianna Éireann scouts carrying out signal training with flags". If you are not familiar with the language of semaphore, allow me to translate for you. It says "Get your Sepia Saturday 117 Posts up on or around Saturday 17th March 2012". Dib dib dib!
