Of Bullets and Boys

by Jay Heale
The story of Mafikeng and its connection with the birth of Scouting


THE PLACE OF STONES is famous for the siege in which Robert Baden-Powell defended the town of Mafeking (as the British spelt the name) in 1899-1900. Here, in outline, is the story of this town from its first beginnings, of its place in local African history, of Sol T. Plaatje, and of the idea which led to the worldwide Scouting Movement.
