We note a range of events in which we see Scout uniforms from all over the world. These events include events such as Camporees, Expos, Gang Shows, and a range of other events Scouts stage. As part of these events, local Scouts may dress up in foreign uniforms. This gives Scouts a chance to see all the different uniforms worn in other countries. There may also be some foreign scouts living locally. The boys find the different uniforms fascinating. There are also a range of national and internaional events in which Scouts may showcase their uniforms. This is not only the obvious international jamborees, but also foreign Scouts commonly attended national jamborees as well and wear their uniforms.
