June 8: We were treated to a private tour of the newly renovated farm at Hougoumont on the historic site of the Battle of Waterloo.

The British Embassy and Project Hougoumont combined to allow our group to visit the site and learn a little about the courage and determination of the men that fought to defend this strategic position on the battlefield.

This visit has sparked the flame of interest in many Scouts and parents alike and we are looking forward to further opportunities to work with the Project.


June 17: Waterloo Scouts and Explorers volunteered to help clear up after the opening ceremony. In return they visited the Allied Bivouacs and met travelling Scout Leaders. It just goes to show how Scouting connects people from all walks of life, different countries, young and old!
