Brian and John from the Stoke Gifford branch of the Royal British Legion attended the Old School Rooms Troop to get the Poppy badge started for this year. The Poppy badge was produced by Gloucestershire scouts and 1st S/G OSR troop were the first to complete it due to Brian being the County Chair of Glos and South Glos RBL.
Tonight they talked to the scouts about WW1 and WW2 and some of the battles which were fought. They spoke about working animals in the war and why we wear a poppy to remember those that paid the Ultimate price.
Then the scouts designed a poppy badge which they’re tasked with making And wearing on the Remembrance Day parade.
The troop will be involved in the poppy launch on 25/10 and helping the RBL with their collection days at Sainsburys
