Slough Scouts were proud to be able to attend another Remembrance Day parade organised by Slough Council in 2021. Representatives from 1st Slough Explorers and 13th Slough Sikh Scouts joined in with the Civic Ceremony, Parade and Wreath laying.

Across the District, Slough Scouts also took part in parades in Cippenham, Colnbrook and Langley.

We would particularly like to remember the following Scouts lost from Slough:
