During her long and devoted work for Guiding and Scouting, Lady Baden-Powell has travelled more than half a million miles. 

She has been round the world five times, and has logged no fewer than six hundred and thirteen aircraft flights. She is probably the most travelled woman in the world. 

Guides, Scouts, Brownies and Cub Scouts of every land have felt her warmth and her deep, personal interest in them. She is a lady of rare quality, and Guiding and Scouting owe her an un-repayable debt. Kipling’s words in his famous poem "If " are truly fulfilled in her, for she has "talked with crowds" and "walked with kings", yet kept "the common touch".
