  • Brookwood Last Post Ceremony

    The band joined  members from Woking Scout District, to parade in this month’s ceremony of the Brookwood Last Post Association at the Brookwood Military Cemetery near Woking.  The Brookwood ceremony originates from when the daily Last Post Association remembrance ceremony held under the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium, was banned during the Second World War and transferred to England.

    During Sunday’s ceremony a Scout, Marc Noble, was remembered. Marc was 10 years old when he attended the first ever Scout camp by Baden-Powell on Brownsea Island in 1907. Marc become a 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Field Artillery and died of wounds received near Ypres in 1917. He was just 20 years of age.
