Peter Baden-Powell was, like his father, educated in Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey, England and at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, Berkshire. He served in the British South African Police between 1934 and 1937. He was in the Native Affairs Department, Southern Rhodesia between 1937 and 1945. He succeeded to the title of 2nd Baron Baden-Powell, of Gilwell, Essex on 8 January 1941. He was invested as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He died in 1962 aged 49, and was succeeded by his son Robert Crause Baden-Powell, 3rd Baron Baden-Powell.

Peter Baden-Powell 1913 - 1963

It is no easy task to be the only son of a famous father, and as one who had known Peter Baden-Powell from early infancy I had often wondered what would be his reaction to the total Scout/Guide atmosphere by which he was surrounded. So perhaps I had more cause than most people to rejoice when, a few months ago, the Boy Scouts Association conferred upon him their highest honour for outstanding work for Scouting - the Silver Wolf.

From delicate babyhood Peter grew into a fine healthy specimen of manhood, capable of roughing it in the wilder parts of Southern Rhodesia, where he served first in the Mounted Police and later in the Colonial Administrative Service. His letters to me at that time spoke always of work with Scouts and Rovers in his spare time, and later of his happy marriage to Carine Boardman and his joyous family life with their three children.

When, on his father’s death in 1941, he returned to this country, Peter bought a house near Farnham, within a few miles of his childhood home at Pax Hill; and with a name like that he was immediately seized upon for Scout work both locally and at Headquarters. From his earliest days as a Wolf Cub to the post which he held at the time of his death of Guildmaster to the B.-P. Guild he may be said to have given his life to Scouting. He had other interests of course. He took his seat in the House of Lords and was a useful member of Committees there. He served as a Special Constable in East London’s busiest streets; he was a member of the Mercers?Company, his father’s old City Guild. As a keen and practised marksman he shot at Bisley for the House of Lords, and he was always ready to help any worthwhile cause whether local or national.

Peter’s main interests continued to be his family and his Scouts and what he most regretted in his severe illness was the number of Scout engagements that had to be cancelled.

To his mother, far away on a Guide tour, and to Carine, his devoted wife, and their three children, all Guiders will extend their loving sympathy.
