Boy Scouts were an organisation that taught young men how to be prepared and survive in the wild. John Parry was once a member of the scouts, and learnt how to start a fire with dry matches. He used this skill to brew some coffee when he was searching for the bearer of the subtle knife with Lee Scoresby.[1]
