Percy Everett

Sir Percy Winn Everett (1870 – 1952-02-23) was an editor-in-chief for the house of Pearson and an active Scouter. He is most known as the Deputy Chief Scout.

Everett first met general R.S.S Baden-Powell in 1906. He was assigned by Arthur Pearson to support Baden-Powell in writing "Scouting for Boys", published in 1908, among others by participating for a day in the Brownsea Island Scout camp the year before.

Everett, already well involved in Scouting and living in Elstree, became the first Scoutmaster of the 1st Elstree Scout group on 1908-03-13 [cite web | url = | title = Be prepared... for 100 years | first = Emma | last = Hutchings | publisher = Borehamwood and Elstree Times | date = 2007-01-25 | accessdate = 2007-02-04]

In 1919, Everett organized the first Wood Badge leadership training in Gilwell Park.

In 1930, Everett was knighted.

In 1948, Everett wrote "The First Ten Years", 88 pages, published by the East Anglian Daily Times, about the first ten years of Scouting.

Baden-Powell conferred the six-bead Wood Badge onto Everett, which he passed on in 1948 to Gilwell Park's Camp Chief John Thurman, to be worn as badge of office by the person responsile for leader training.
