1960 Boy Scout Handbook ADVERTISEMENTS: Part 2


The one thing advertised over and over again in the Boy Scout handbook are guns. Lots of rifles. I think a total of 7 ads.

A reader of yesterday's post asked if I knew if the Boy Scouts sold anything like the Girl Scouts selling cookies. I can't think of anything. Anyone ever hear of Boy Scouts going door to door selling something?




Ever hear of the Winchester Mystery house built by Sarah Winchester? If not, you might be interested in reading about how some of the Winchester fortune was spent by clicking here.
