This Scout Field Book is from 1944. I think the difference between this and the usual Boy Scout Handbook is there is more emphasis on the out of doors and a bit less about being a scout ie citizenship and the scouting ranks although there is still a bit in this book. Unlike the last book I posted from 1942 this one has photos instead of illustrations.
There are many sections on flora and fauna but I picked a few at semi-random and ended up with these. Photo #2 features signaling with the semaphore flags for when their is no cell phone signal.
Photo #3 features many of the fun accessories. The axes and collapsible shovel looks like fun.
Wrapping it up is the first aid section. Includes a photo/diagram of the major arteries and where to apply tourniquets. Also handy for defending oneself against rouge scout if needed.
