Cornwell Troop meets on a Monday
Why the name?
John ‘Jack’ Cornwell VC (8 January 1900 – 2 June 1916), is remembered for his gallantry at the Battle of Jutland. Having died at the age of only 16, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces.
Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout movement, created an award in his honour, The Cornwell Scout Badge is still used by Scout associations throughout the Commonwealth. It is awarded to youth members in respect of pre-eminently high character and devotion to duty, together with great courage and endurance. For these reasons we use the name Cornwell for one of our Scout Troops.
