    It depends on what era you're looking for as the Handbooks are different. I have a replica of the original 1912 hamdbook to ones from the 20's, 30's and 40's.

    'Be Prepared' was the one in the 1950s, the one before that was called 'Girl Guiding' (many editions, first around 1918 I think), and the very original one was "How Girls can help build up the Empire"

    Which ever one was around in the 1960's, so would that be the "Be Prepared" version?
