2017 Norfolk Scouts St George’s Day Award Recipients
We are delighted that the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, has recognised the following members of Norfolk Scouts in the 2017 St George’s day awards.
The Silver Wolf is the unrestricted gift of the Chief Scout and is only awarded for service of a most exceptional nature, it is seldom awarded for less than 30 years service although, because it is the Chief Scout’s unrestricted gift, no length of service is prescribed.
