 Cub Challenge Day

A massive Bravo and Good Luck to the Team from Forton who will be representing Lonsdale on Sunday 24th at the County Cub Challenge Day. They achieved 120 out of 120 on a very well attended day at Silverhelme. We had 18 teams and everybody went home smiling. Thank you to all the leaders that helped out, running bases and supervising the teams. We cant do this without you.

The Wolf Cub’s Handbook By Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell (1949 edition)

“To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it more fit for its prime function of looking forward.”
Margaret Fairless Barber –

Inside the 1949 edition of the handbook there is a section, which might be of interest (and perhaps amusement) to today’s members, outlining the pronunciation of Jungle Names from the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling.

AKELA – Ah-kay-lah. Ah and kay are easy, so is the lah you sing when you are having your singing lesson – Doh, ray,me,fah,soh, LAH.

BAGHEERA – Bah-gheer-ah. First Bah, like a sheep, then Gear (motor cars have them), and lastly Ah.

BALOO – Bah-loo. First Bah, as in Bagheera, them Loo, the last part of Water-loo.

BANDARLOG. Bun-der-loag. The Ban is pronounced Bun (you all know how to say Bun, I know); the Dar is like Dirt without the final T, and Log is like the first part of Loganberry.

KAA. Pronounced like Car, but letting the R be scarcely sounded at all.

MOWGLI. Mou-gly. The first part of Mou(th), and the Gli from glitter.

SEEONEE. Say-oh-knee.

SHERE KHAN. Share-Kharn. Shere is said just like a share of anything. Khan is “can’t” without the final t.

TABAQUI. Tab-ah-ky. Take the first part of Tab(by) cat, then say Ah, and the Qui is Kiss without the ss.

I hope that you have been pronouncing your characters correctly!
