The founder of the Boy Scouts was a spy?


Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell –  British Army lieutenant-general. He was also the founder of the Scout Movement!

And not only that, this man also worked as an intelligence officer for the Mediterranean for the Director of Military Intelligence, in other words, he was a real spy!

He was always pretending to be absentminded tourist and was always traveling as a butterfly collector, which allowed him to incorporate plans of military installations into his drawings of butterfly wings.

It’s hard to believe that the man who founded the scout movement was also a spy.
