We are proud to announce that following on from last year’s District Roll of Honour, it has been expanded to cover the whole of North Staffordshire. It commemorates those Scouts from Newcastle and the Potteries who have been killed in armed conflicts since the beginning of the First World War over 100 years ago.
However, there are potentially many unrecorded Scouts not on the Roll of Honour, as records of Scouts killed in conflicts do not appear to have been kept. There were many active Troops in North Staffordshire during the First and Second World Wars and many still exist today (Audley, Kidsgrove, Tunstall, Alsager, Stoke & Longton for example) along with ones who have closed (Hanley YMCA & Wolstanton Grammar School for example) who would have likely had members killed while serving in the armed forces.
If anyone knows of any Scouts from North Staffordshire killed in armed conflicts since the beginning of the First World War, please get in touch with us so they can be added to the Roll of Honour.
