Britain's Oldest Scouter still active at 85

Recommended Posts

Ray Aldous joined in 1943 when he was just 11 years old after being pushed by his father who was a war veteran and scout member himself.

‘It keeps me as fit and as healthy,’ Mr Aldous, from Luton, said.

‘I still keep active and I am still pretty much involved with the town.

Mr Aldous was honoured by the Queen in 2015 with an MBE for services to Young People and Scouting.

(MBE is Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.  Scout salute  - RS)

He said: ‘When I was notified by Buckingham Palace and received the MBE for my services of the scout movement.

‘This was such an unexpected honour to be singled out for such world-wide publicity. I am immensely proud of my MBE.’
