Recommended Posts

Got this from our Council Commissioner:


From Chief Executive of UK Scouts


Betty Clay - 16th April 1917 24th April 2004



It is with deep regret that I announce the death of our Vice President,


the Hon Mrs Betty Clay, CBE, and youngest daughter of our Founder.


She died peacefully in her sleep in a nursing home alongside her home in


Somerset, on Saturday morning 24th April 2004, just a few days after


she and Gervas had celebrated their joint birthday her 87th and his 97th.




In mourning her passing we give thanks for a life lived to the full, committed


to the ideals of Scouting and Guiding and the vision of her parents.


She was and remains an inspiration to the youth and Leaders of todays Movements.




At the moment we await further information from the family but in the mean


time the Association's Flag at HQ buildings and campsites will remain at half-mast until after the funeral.








Derek Twine


Chief Executive
