The Mark of The Beatles

The very famous and infamous Beatles struck a pose on King’s Road that has lived in infamy for decades. Now, we don’t claim to leave a mark on Chicago for years to come but we sure know how to cross a busy street. Never fear, all precautions in the name of safety were taken before crossing the street. ūüôā

One day it would be super sweet if we actually took a trip to England as a crew. ¬†We could go to King’s Road and strike the famous Beatles pose. ¬†But an even better reason for our crew to visit England would be W.D. Boyce.

William Dickson “W.D.” Boyce is the founder of the Boy Scouts of America. ¬†Legend holds he was in London in 1909 and one very foggy night he became lost. ¬†Boyce could not find his way when out of the fog¬†emerged¬†a young man who showed him the way. W.D. Boyce was very grateful to the young man. ¬†He asked the youth why he had performed such an unexpected form of good service. ¬†The young man replied he was just doing his good turn as a Boy Scout and would not accept a tip. ¬†Boyce never saw the youth again.

Mr. Boyce was so intrigued by this young man, upon his return home he investigated the Boy Scouts and Sir Baden Powell. ¬†A few months later, Boyce founded the Boy Scouts of America. ¬†The Beatles made quite the mark on the music industry. ¬†But the mark of the Boy Scouts of America on the young men, and now women, of the United States is far greater than any rock ‘n’ roll band.

So while going to King’s Road would be quite thrilling the real excitement would be walking the streets of London and being grateful to the Unknown Scout for assisting W.D. Boyce. ¬†If it were not for the London Fog Venture Crew 91 might never have come into existence.
