King Scouts / Queen Scouts / Pengakap Raja

First postwar King Scout

he King Scout/ Queen Scout/ Pengakap Raja (the name varies according to the sovereign), is the highest award in Scouting (presently reserved for Senior Scouts only) and is the ultimate aspiration for all V.I. Scouts. Versatility, hard work, patience, attention to detail, thorough knowledge of Scoutcraft, moral integrity – these are the attributes that one associates with a recipient of the award. The following is a list of V.I. Scouts who have won the award over the years and the (approximate) year in which they won it. ‘Winning it’ could mean either that he finished his test, or was standardised, or was presented with the award in that year. The list begins with Chief Patrol Leader Choong Wan Chan. In fact, there have been more King Scouts/ Queen Scouts/ Pengakap Raja than this list suggests, but their names were never recorded in the Scout reports of the Victorian magazines. Nonetheless, may this list be an inspiration to future generations of V.I. Scouts.
