I England holdt man en jamboree i Wembley for spejdere fra det britiske imperie. Den fandt sted 1. - 8. august 1924 og lå i forbindelse med det britiske imperies udstilling, der blev afholdt 1924-1925 for at fremme handelen med de 58 kolonilande[1]. Der deltog ca. 1000 spejdere fra 25 af commonwealthlandene og de britiske kolonier, og omkring 10.000 spejdere fra Storbritannien.

Dette sikrede en bred international repræsentation på jamboreen i Danmark, da de mange udlændinge alligevel var 'i nærheden'.

Great Britain held an Imperial Jamboree at Wembley, Middlesex at the beginning of August 1924, in connection with the British Empire Exhibition. Over 1,000 Scouts from 25 parts of the Commonwealth and Empire accepted the invitation. 10,000 Scouts were present from the United Kingdom. The displays and ceremonies took place in Wembley Stadium. The Scouts were camped nearby in Wembley Paddocks in very cramped quarters. The Prince of Wales witnessed the displays in the stadium, presided at a campfire and stayed the night at a tent in the Paddocks. On different days the chief guests in the stadium were the Duke of York and Rudyard Kipling, on the Wolf Cubs' Day, when he saw how parts of his Jungle Books were dramatized and used to bring atmosphere and interest into the Cub program.
