Records also show that the founder of the Scout Movement, Lord Baden-Powell, was invited to meet Adolf Hitler.
Despite the invitation there is no evidence Baden-Powell met Hitler, although he did meet with some members of the Nazi hierarchy.
Lord Baden-Powell met Hartmann Lauterbacher, chief of staff of the Hitler Youth and Joachim von Ribbentrop, to London 19 November 1937.
Von Ribbentrop, who arranged the meeting for Baden-Powell, was Germany’s ambassador to Britain at the time and became Hitler’s foreign minister the following year.
