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.
