Green Bar Bill

As we discussed back in 2014, the Scouting legend William “Green Bar Bill” Hillcourt came to Boxwell to stay for awhile.  The article though looks at Hillcourt’s history and even gives some explanation of his involvement with the Scout Handbook and how writing the 9th Edition brought him out of retirement.
