Remembrance Day - a tale of two parades

On a bright, cold autumn day members of the Group joined the annual Remembrance Day Parade through the streets of Totton to the war memorial. Many people commented on the large turnout and the smart appearance and discipline of the Group. Well Done to everyone and what a fitting way to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed everything for us.

Meanwhile, seventy miles away in London, our ASL, Flic, was marching past the Cenotaph in Whitehall as part of the national parade. Flic said it was a great honour to be there, representing UK Scouts, but was delighted by the huge support they received from the public. 10,000 people took part and the Scouts bring up the rear of the parade, but even so the public were still clapping and cheering them on. It was a busy weekend for the members of the Queen's Scouts Working Party (QSWP) who had travelled from all over the UK to be there; they had already spent Saturday helping out the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
