Dudley Scout Honoured with Coronation Medal by King Charles III

Date: 12th Apr 2024 Author: districtteam

In an unprecedented move, around 200 Scouts have been awarded the official Coronation Medal in recognition of their service during the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III last year. This honour, bestowed by the King himself, marks a significant milestone in the history of the Scout Movement.

Myla a Leader in Kingswinford and a Dudley scout has been awarded the Coronation Medal due to her volunteering service. We wish her many congratulations as she represented us locally and nationally.

The Scouts, who played a pivotal role in the Coronation ceremonies, have been lauded for their dedication, commitment, and service. “We couldn’t be prouder of your achievement,” said a spokesperson for the Scout Movement. “This is an honour from the King himself.”

While not all recipients will be attending the Day of Celebration and Achievement at Windsor Castle on 21 April, alternative arrangements have been made to ensure they receive their due recognition. The Scouts have been invited to attend a special presentation at this year’s Gilwell Reunion on Saturday, 31 August. This gesture underscores the importance of community and camaraderie within the Scout Movement.

The Coronation Medal serves as a testament to the Scouts’ unwavering dedication and their significant contribution to a historic event. It is a proud moment not just for the recipients, but for the entire Scout Movement.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
