Arriving from Hampshire in the 1940’s, he took up the post of Bursar at Harrow School — during which time he became involved, through Fund Raising, with Roxeth Scout District. He was an obvious candidate for District Chairman, a post which he held for over thirty years.
Many members of the ‘Old Roxeth District’ days will fondly remember him on the stage at the District Headquarters with District Commissioner Eric Cockram in the show “Oliver”.
He received the Medal of Merit in 1984, the Bar to the Medal of Merit in 1994, and the Long Service Award in 1995.
It was his commitment and dedication to Scouting that helped him through the pain of losing his wife Dorothy who died a few years earlier.
Rest in peace George.
