It’s the Remembrance Day service this Sunday (the 13th) at Winchester Cathedral. We often say how it’s the highlight of our Scouting calendar – and it is. It is a real privilege to stand at the memorial with the Green Jackets and, as such, we need to look the part. This means full uniform for all Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, with ironed neckers.
Here, for avoidance of doubt, is Ladybird’s guide to ironing your necker:
- Iron flat
- Place triangle on board with point at bottom
- Fold over top by 1cm and iron
- Continue to fold and iron a 1cm strip until the badge is reached
Properly done, it will take around 15 minutes but should keep the necker in immaculate condition for two years!
On Sunday, please meet outside the West Door of the Cathedral at 8.45am. The ceremony will start at 9am and finish by 9.20am.
