While holding this position, Baden-Powell was instrumental in reforming reconnaissance training in British cavalry, giving the force an important advantage in scouting ability over continental rivals. In he was promoted to Lieutenant-General but was left on the inactive list. Eventually he was appointed to the lowly command of the Northumbrian Division of the newly formed Territorial Force. In , after being rebuked for a series of what were regarded as publicity gaffes, one suggesting invasion by Germany, Baden-Powell retired from the Army.
No command was given to him.

I have had a most happy life and I want each one of you to have a happy life too. I believe that God put us in this jolly world to be happy and enjoy life.

One step towards happiness is to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy, so that you can be useful and so you can enjoy life when you are a man.
Nature study will show you how full of beautiful and wonderful things God has made the world for you to enjoy.
Baden-Powell's Beads (Beads, #1) by Paul D. Parsons
Be contented with what you have got and make the best of it. Look on the bright side of things instead of the gloomy one. But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.

Some early Scouting "Thanks" badges from and the Scouting "Medal of Merit" badge had a swastika symbol on them. The swastika had been a symbol for luck in India long before being adopted by the National Socialist Party in , and when Nazi use of the swastika became more widespread, the Scouts stopped using it.
According to a biography by Michael Rosenthal , Baden-Powell used the swastika because he was a Nazi sympathiser. By contrast, Jeal argues that Baden-Powell had been ignorant of the symbol's growing association with Nazism and that he had used the symbol for its centuries-old meaning of "good luck" in India. Nazi Germany banned Scouting, a competitor to the Hitler Youth , in June , seeing it as "a haven for young men opposed to the new State". Three of Baden-Powell's many biographers comment on his sexuality; the first two in and focused on his relationship with his close friend Kenneth McLaren.
Baden-Powell published books and other texts during his years of military service both to finance his life and to generally educate his men. Baden-Powell was regarded as an excellent storyteller. During his whole life he told "ripping yarns" to audiences. After having published Scouting for Boys , Baden-Powell kept on writing more handbooks and educative materials for all Scouts, as well as directives for Scout Leaders.
In his later years, he also wrote about the Scout movement and his ideas for its future.
