The plaque marks the centenary of the Scouting Movement which began in the United Kingdom in 1907. 

Scouting was founded by Lord Robert Baden-Powell.  While he formulated his ideas over many years, Scouting acknowledges the 1st of August 1907 as the date when the Movement was founded.

Scouting soon spread throughout the world, with Scout Groups starting in Australia in 1908.
