Title: GIRL GUIDING HISTORY


1
GIRL GUIDING HISTORY!!!
2
INTRODUCTION!
  • This is my project on Girl Guiding History. It
    includes old uniforms, how the Royal family has
    been included over the years and who created Girl
    Guiding.

3
Who created Girl Guiding?
  • In the early 20th century, Robert Baden-Powell, a
    famous army general, thought of a way of training
    boys. He tried out his ideas at a camp on
    Brownsea Island in 1907 and then they were
    published in a book, Scouting for Boys. The book
    became popular very quickly and boys in UK took
    up Scouting. Robert was soon running Scouting,
    himself.
  •  
  • At the Scouts' first meeting, at the Crystal
    Palace in 1909, a small group of girls turned up.
    They represented hundreds of other girls and
    insisted that they should and wanted to be Scouts
    too.
  •  
  • In the year when skirts were ankle length and
    young ladies never ran, the idea of girls being a
    part in camping, hiking and similar activities,
    got a mixed ideas.
  •  
  • The letters that Robert sent to people showed
    that he had an idea what girls could do. In 1910
    he created the Girl Guides and asked his sister
    Agnes to look after the Girl Guides. A couple of
    years later Roberts wife, Olave became a part
    of Girl Guides and in 1918 she was Chief Guide.

BROWNIE UNIFORMS!
Through out the years of guiding, brownies and
guides wore hats or caps most of the time. In
1914 the Brownie Uniform was called Rosebuds.
Brownies had to wear a dark-blue skirt, knitted
jumper and a cap. In 1915 the main colours of
clothing was brown and blue. Brownies wore an
overall, skirt and jumper with a tie and a hat or
a cap.
5
Brownies in 1926 wore the uniform from 1917. It
was a brown dress that had patch pockets, brown
belt, knitted cap or a rush hat and a tie.
6
  • Brownies in 1932 wore the same clothes as before
    except with a pork pie hat with buttons and
    instead of a brown tie they wore a gold tie.
    Everyone in the same pack wore the same colours.
    Brownies probably only wore their hats outside.

7
  • Brownies in 1967 wore a brown dress with pockets
    in the skirt. The dress was worn with a new
    yellow cross tie.
  • In 1990 the Brownies uniform changed completely.
    They wore a t shirt, jumper, brown skirt or
    trousers and a sash.
  • The brownie logo changed, that was on the uniform
    in 1994. The Brownie Promise badge is now the
    same as other girl guiding groups but in yellow.

8
  • Now Brownies wear brown trousers or shorts, brown
    jacket, yellow t shirt and a sash. We have a box
    wear we can keep our books and letters to take
    home.

GUIDES UNIFORMS!
For Robert Baden-Powells Scheme for Girl Guides
he suggested that Guides wear a jumper, tie,
dark-blue skirt, straw hat. Then in 1911 Guides
started wearing a navy-blue hat, dark-blue shirt,
pale-blue tie and a belt.
10
  • Guides in the early 1920s wore a dark blue dress
    that was very popular.
  • By the 1920s Guides would start to un-tuck their
    t shirts out of their skirts and finished it off
    with a belt.
  • Proficiency badges that are now called badges are
    sewn at the top of the right sleeve and Guides
    work their way down.
  • In the 1930s Guides started wearing a smaller,
    softer hat without a chin strap and they wore it
    throughout World War 2.

11
  • The Guides uniform changed extremely quickly in
    1946. They wore a shirt that was a bright blue
    that is now known as Guide blue. The t shirt is
    tucked into the skirt and the t shirt is a navy
    blue. They also wore a felt navy blue beret.

12
  • In 1964 Guides started wearing an air-hostess
    style hat.
  • Then in 1965 Guides also started wearing ¾ length
    jackets.
  • The loose ends of a tie that the Guides wear fit
    through a tie ring on the blouse.
  • In 1968 the blouse changed from ¾ length to full
    length and the Guides could wear a belt if they
    wanted.

13
  • In 1981 Guides wore a blue blouse that had no
    pockets. Then Guides would tuck their blouse into
    their navy-blue skirt.

14
  • In 1990 a completely different uniform was made.
    It was a polo shirt or t shirt, jumper, skirt or
    trousers and a sash. This was designed by Jeff
    Banks.

15
  • This is the uniform that Guides would wear today.
    There main colour is blue.

This is the Guide badge.
16
THE ROYAL FAMILY IN GIRLGUIDNG!
The Royal Family has been involved in Girl
Guiding over the years. In 1920 Princess Mary
became President of the Association. Then in
1937 Queen Elizabeth 2nd became a Guide and her
sister, Princess Margaret became a Brownie.
17
  • Princes Elizabeth was a Girl Guide and Princess
    Margaret was a Brownie and a Guide.
  • Princess Elizabeth and her sister Princess
    Margaret is practising their 1st aid skills in
    1943.
  • Princess Elizabeth is wearing a badge that
    represents the Swallow Patrol. Also she is
    wearing 2 white stripes which shows that she is a
    patrol leader.

18
  • Queen Elizabeth went to Windsor Castle in 1952
    to congratulate Scouts from all over the world on
    earning their Queen Scout Award.

19
  • The Queen was involved in The World Scout
    Jamboree, that took place in Birmingham, 1952. An
    event similar to this one will happen in Essex
    this year to celebrate 100 years of Scouting.

20
  • The Queen meets Scouts and Guides while on
    holiday in Brisbane, Australia in 2002. You can
    see how the uniforms are different to ours.

21
  • In 1946, The Queens mother started a scheme, The
    Queen Guide Award. It is the highest badge any
    Guide can achieve.
  • This is the Countess of Wessex who is also the
    President of Girl Guiding UK. She is at a
    ceremony for the Girl Guide who have successfully
    achieved the Girl Guide Award.

22
  • Well, that is the end of my project. I hope you
    enjoyed reading all about Girl Guiding History.
