There is a website where the book is published here : thedump.scoutscan.com but we can't copy the text from the pdf. So we can try to hack the file (I can't) or to contact the webmaster of the website. In France, we have an association, Le Réseau Baden-Powell (BP Network) which permit to see a lot of document without being able to copy. We tried ro find a way to collaborate but his policy was strict and they didn't help us for the books of the french writer Guy de Larigaudie. I think the policy of The Dump should be the same but we can try to contact the webmaster. Florian 13:15, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Ok, I read and it seems it will not work. We can try to contact the webmaster, we may have a good surprise. Otherwise, I tried to crack the file with a free version of PDFKey, I cracked 28 pages (the 28 first pages of each chapter). We must think about this and about the conscience problem : we just avoid to the same work one more time and the book will be in the public domain BUT we doesn't respect the wish of the webmaster. Such a dilimna ! Florian 10:13, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Let us wait a year with the works of Robert Baden-Powell and start with authors whose death was earlier. I can convert most pdf to html (and wiki if needed) --Egel 18:57, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
