After some criticism from the public, Baden-Powell created a separate organisation in 1910 called 'The Girl Guides Association".
Girl guide groups began appearing in Australia in 1909, and in 1926 a national organisation was formed.
I've decided I'll recreate some of this beautifulness and wear it anyway (girl guide or no!)
