100th Anniversary
About Jamboree Contigents
The Contingent Leader was J. Skotte Hansen

The number of participants was 661. This includes 44 scouts from the Faeroe Islands in the Atlantic and 32 Danish leaders and rovers, who acted as part of the staff of one of the Sub-Camps. The Danish scouts traveled by special train, stopping for 24 hours in Salzburg in Austria, passing through Skopje in Yugoslavia a few hours before the earth-Hake which partly destroyed the city. We look forward to receiving the souvenir book. We very much enjoyed Indian Tea. I still have some of it left.
