This postcard, a work by the painter Emil Huber (1883-1943), is the first in a series dedicated to young "Scouts in the Service of the Army". It depicts the use of the scout movement on the fringes of the troops. On the right side of the picture, a young scout has dismounted from his bicycle. The youth is practically standing at attention. He is wearing the traditional uniform (four-humped felt hat, neckerchief, khaki shirt). This clothing was introduced internationally in 1907 by Robert Baden-Powell, the British founder of the Scout movement. The scout wears a Helvetic armband on his left arm, the sign of belonging to the national movement founded shortly before the war ( 1913). On the left of the picture, an officer holds a notebook in his hands. He seems to be smiling, obviously satisfied with the enlightener's commitment.
