HUNDREDS of Scouts from across Hampshire rallied to commemorate World War One at Winchester Cathedral.

The event last week included displays by the Scouts of 1910-14, Scout and Guide bands playing period music and a performance from Basingstoke Gang Show.

It was attended by Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire Dame Mary Fagan – her last public event as president of Hampshire Scouting before retirement.

During the war scouts performed services including coast watching, messengers, helping at local hospitals, and fundraising.

They will achieve a commemorate badge to wear on their uniform by taking part in activities related to the Great War, which sees its centenary this year.
