Why do Australian Young Guides salute like older Guides?

I share with you a story I was told about a a small voice that was made louder.  The story goes like this:

The little Australian Brownie Guide who wanted to know why Brownie Guides were not allowed to Salute like the Girl Guides… after all were they not Girl Guides too.  Since this happened about 1959 the effect was amazing.  Australian Brownie Guides and New Zealand Brownie Guides of the time were able to Salute with permission from the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.  It did take time for the Voice of one Brownie Guide to travel all the way up the chain of command but it did happen.  So even small voices can be heard when they have a good advocate.
