Girl Guide & Queen’s Guide

One upon a time a long, long time ago, I achieved my Queen’s Guide Award in Girl Guides.

As Guides we could complete voluntary merit badges covering all sorts of skills, both indoor and outdoor pursuits, and when you had achieved the requisite number of merit badges across several different categories, you achieved your Queen’s Guide Award.

There is a photograph somewhere that appeared in our local newspaper of me and two others receiving our awards from our District Commissioner, but for now its location eludes me.

I was part of the Girl Guide movement from the age of seven, when I first became a Brownie Guide, through Girl Guides to Ranger Guides, which I left when I was about sixteen, I think (once school exams properly kicked in and formal education took precedence) 🙂
