Today, I have had the pleasure of visiting the National Scout Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, where I had the pleasure of laying a special 1st Abram Birthday necker on the memorial.  The necker, which has our Birthday Badge stitched onto it (where it would normally be on the uniform shirt or jumper), will remain there until The NMA Team remove it at such a point when the memorial becomes ‘too full’ or needs cleaning.   I cannot recommend visiting The NMA enough, it’s a really great walk, and some very eye opening memorials present from all walks of life.
