Hampshire Scouts commemorate WWI at Winchester Cathedral event
HUNDREDS of Scouts from across Hampshire rallied to commemorate World War One at Winchester Cathedral.
The event last week included displays by the Scouts of 1910-14, Scout and Guide bands playing period music and a performance from Basingstoke Gang Show.
It was attended by Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire Dame Mary Fagan – her last public event as president of Hampshire Scouting before retirement.
During the war scouts performed services including coast watching, messengers, helping at local hospitals, and fundraising.
They will achieve a commemorate badge to wear on their uniform by taking part in activities related to the Great War, which sees its centenary this year.
