Baden-Powell wrote of his mother on her death in 1909

When I first put forward the idea of the Girl Guide Movement, I was not so very hopeful about it myself until my mother, with her ripe experience and plucky spirit, urged me to go ahead with it. Her feeling might have been expressed briefly thus:
"Push on with it - suggest it to the girls, and they, with their spirit, will do the rest. And I believe you will."

Robert Baden-Powell was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 1939, but the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided not to award any prize for that year due to the start of World War II.
BP's view of Australia

"Have you ever noticed that the east side of Australia is like a rabbit's head and the west like a lion's?"
Yarns By BP

Robert Baden-Powell gave Olave her engagement ring as they went to arrange for their special marriage licence. He formally proposed to her on the steps of the building and slipped the ring on her finger. The ring was a simple metal band, embossed with a fleur-de-lys, made and given to BP by a African scout.
