(#5 hit voor Reinald Werrenrath in 1907 [Edison Gold Moulded Record 9604] (wax cylinder)

(In 1907 wordt op initiatief van Sir Baden-Powell de Scouting over de hele wereld opgericht. Omdat hij het in zijn jeugd leuker vindt de natuur in te trekken dan in de schoolbanken te zitten, haalt hij het toegangsexamen voor de universiteiten in Oxford niet en zit er voor hem op 19-jarige leeftijd niets anders op dan het leger in te gaan. Op 24 januari 1908 brengt hij het boek “Scouting for boys” op de markt. In Nederlands begint scouting in 1910 en is de eerste 5 jaar alleen voor jongens.)
