Chief Scout and Field-Marshal
"... After this the Chiefs went to
write their names in the book of the President, who was absent in the country, and were
received by the Prime Minister in the Senate House. They then went with their staff to
spend a peaceful half-hour at the house of Field-Marshal Baron Mannerheim. This is the man
who saved Finland from the Russian and German invasions, and his grateful country has
given him this lovely house on a hill overlooking the harbour. The Chief Scout enjoyed
have a quiet talk with this man after his own heart ...."
From Rose Kerr, The
Cruise of the "Calgaric," London, 1934
