"Brother Scouts, I ask you to make a solemn choice. Differences exist between the people of the world in thought and sentiment, just as they do in language and physique. The war has taught us that if one nation tries to impose its particular will upon the others, cruel reaction is bound to follow. The Jamboree has taught us that if we exercise mutual forbearance and give-and-take, then there is sympathy and harmony. If it be your will, let us go forth from here fully determined that we will develop among ourselves and our boys that comradeship, through the world-wide spirit of the Scout Brotherhood, so that we may help to develop peace and happiness in the world and goodwill among men.
Brother Scouts, answer me. Will you join in this endeavour?"
Baden-Powell of Gilwell
closing challenge, first World Jamboree, Olympia, London, 7 august 1920
