SSS YORKSHIRE - Sea Scout Ship 25, York, PA is pleased to present some
glimpses of the rich history of this fine movement we call Sea
Scouting. As your old Seascout Manual will tell you, SSS
stands for "Scouting, Seamanship, and Service", with a little
fourth "s" thrown in for "social". This is part of
our "service" to you, our gentle readers.
