Scouting Round the World, first edition

Scouting 'Round the World is the seminal work on world Scouting, a publication of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, updated every three years,[citation needed] with details on all WOSM member-nation organizations. The equivalent publication of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is Trefoil 'Round the World.

History[edit]

Upon the 50th anniversary of World Scouting in 1957, Colonel J. S. Wilson took his research notes gathered on a six-year world tour reviewing the world's Scout organizations, culminating in a five-month tour of Asia in October 1952, and authored the publication of the first edition of Scouting Round the World.
