History of Scout Movement in Penang and Malaysia
In Malaysia, scout movement started two years after it was founded in London.  However, it is believed that a trial group had been established in Penang in 1908, the same year that scouting was formed in England.

Before the independence on August 31, 1957, the scout movement in Malaysia was formally registered with the London headquarters of the Boy Scouts Association (now The Scout Association).  On September 1, 1957, the national organization was admitted as a full member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, and now known as Scouts Association of Malaysia (Persekutuan Pengakap Malaysia).  The scout movement in Malaysia is governed under Parliament Act 1969 No. 38 with admendment in Act 143 of Malaysian Laws, and Scouts Association of Malaysia Act 1974.
