National Scout Memorial

>>  Monday, June 04, 2018

 Whilst walking around the National Memorial Arboretum
 I spotted the words "Try and leave this world a"

and I thought "I recognise that, that's Baden-Powell"
 "..little better then you found it"

 "and when your turn comes to die"
 "you can die happy"
 "in feeling that at any rate"
 "you have not wasted your time"

It was a really lovely memorial funded by the Scouts and very well designed.

"Viewed from above, it forms the shape of the ‘Gone Home’ trail symbol which appears on Lord Baden-Powell’s gravestone."
