Timing Problem[edit]

The article tells us that "Chums' "On the Watch Tower" news column reported on September 11 1907 that Robert Baden-Powell's Brownsea Island Scout camp was proposed". That was hardly news at that time. The camp been and gone. It began on 1st August 1907.

This needs to be either corrected, clarified or deleted. HiLo48 (talk) 20:25, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

I had a zip through the 1905-6 and 1906-7 volumes but couldn't see anything. Perhaps a more detailed look is called for! Incedentally the "articles on Julius Caesar in Britain" were actually short comedy comic strips that had "Romanish"-looking modern contraptions (modern for the 1890's anyway!) such as "ye switchback".
