Photo of the Month - June 2000

I nearly passed over this group of three photos from Colin Karslake. (aka, Apache) who is a helper at Basingstoke Air Scouts. Then I looked at them again and remembered that the parade on St Georges day is a special tradition to Scouting that is followed all over the country. Other than the parades of Rememberance Sunday, I can think of no other example of a comparable nationwide public event.
These photos were taken on Sunday 16th April 2000, at the Basingstoke East Scout District's, St. George's Day Parade.
