Former Scout and Firefighter dies

You may have heard of the tragic death of two firemen in Southampton this week. On the right in this photo is Alan Bannon who was a member of the 14th Southampton Scout Group for many years. We send our condolences to his family.

Former Scout Leader, Peter Knight, comments: Alan came up from Cubs through to Venture Scouts and was always particularly keen on outdoor activites, backwoods and climbing. In Scouts he was a Patrol Leader and achieved the Chief Scout’s Award. He became a keen caver when in the Venture Scouts. He was always ready to help others with adventurous activities, whether it was from the top of an abseiling tower or halfway up a Scottish mountain.
