A Member of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits

Sunday, 3 October 2010


As we passed by St. Katharine's church, I noticed this headstone and recognised the shape of it immediately. I asked my friend Chrissie to stop the car so that I could go and investigate ( my friends are extremely tolerant of my interest in tombstones and cemeteries and will wait patiently, whilst I whip out my camera and do my thing ) unfortunately the inscription is so worn as to be illegible.
So this headstone may belong to either a devoted Boy Scout or maybe a Scout Leader.

St. Katharine's, Ickleford, Bedfordshire

The Fleur~de~Lys symbol with two stars, is the International emblem of The Scouting Association, it is often accompanied with the motto 'Be Prepared'.

And here is another Scout from Southend-on-Sea, Essex
