A Knights Code- A Long Journey

Here is the Knights Code of Old:

Be always ready with your armor on, except when you are taking your rest at night.

*Defend the poor and help them that cannot defend themselves.

*Do nothing to hurt or offend anyone else.

*Be prepared to fight in the defense of your country.

*At whatever you are working, try to win honor and a name for honesty.

*Never break your promise.

*Maintain the honor of your country with your life. Rather die honestly then live shamelessly.

*Chivalry requireth that youth should be trained to perform the most laborious and humble offices with cheerfulness and grace; and do good unto others.

We could use a few Knights nowaday.

Throughout the Next week or so I will be breaking down each one of these statements and relating it to scouting in some form, some are quite obvious but some will be difficult to understand. Hopefully you enjoy the journey all the way.

Yours in Scouting Service
