SCOUTS from across the county will be taking part in a service to commemorate the First World War.

The event is being held at Winchester Cathedral on Friday and will be the final scouting event for Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire Dame Mary Fagan, who is also the president of Hampshire Scouts, before she retires.

Hundreds of Scouts will attend the service, which will see displays of 1910-14 Scouting activities such as a typical camp and a meeting along as well as three Scout and Guide bands from Fareham playing period music.

The Commemoration of Service, Reconciliation, Peace will end with 1919-1925 displays of Scouting activities including a Wolf Cub (now called Cub Scouts) Grand Howl.

All the Hampshire Scouts that take part will achieve a commemorative badge to wear on their uniform.

Hampshire Scouting has more than 1,600 young people waiting to join and needs more adult volunteers. To find out more go to
