Toughtening body & mind

Thanks to the scout masters, my mind and body were toughtened by the six-year scouting experience from Tenderfoot to First Class (1975-1980).

We were taught in courses as well as through participation in field activities like camping, trekking and marching to make organisational decisions or operational commands in short and precise language or signals as leaders responsible for other's safety and well-beings.

We were also taught the value of group coherence and solidarity as well as the importance of always surveying our left and right flanks, front and rear to ensure security of the environment of our positions or movements.
