Dear reader,

Membership Number: 

Remembrance Sunday Parades

It was great too see so many members of our County at so many different Remembrance Sunday parades across the County. We are especially proud of  Carl Greenslade and Lucy Jane Pepper who will form part of the Guard of Honour at the Cenotaph in front of HM the Queen. 

The honour was founded after the First World War when King George V invited London-based Queen's (then called King's) Scouts to form a Guard of Honour along the walk to the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday in recognition of Scouting's efforts and sacrifices during the War.

Well done to everyone who attended a parade. We will remember them!
