Perhaps you wonder what is a Young Knight of the Empire.
Well, you know what a knight is-or rather, used to be in the old days-a gallant fellow who was always ready to defend weaker people when they were being bullied; he was brave and honourable, and ready to risk his life in doing his duty according to the code or law of Chivalry.

These are the Boy Scouts. Their code is the Scout Law-that is, a set of ten rules which they carry out in their daily life.
I will explain these Laws, and will give you some other yarns of camp life and adventure such as the Scouts go in for.
