About the memorial: An 8 metre diameter circular memorial set out in the form of a camp fire circle. In the centre is an idealised image of the camp fire and round the circle's circumference are 6 blocks representing various aspects of scouting including cast figures in sleeping bags keeping warm around the fire. On their sides are carved Robert Baden-Powells final message to scouts 'Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.' Around the circumference of the circle are carved names of 200 countries where scouting takes place. The memorial recognises the difference Scouting has made to so many and remembers the service given by the many Scouts across communities and throughout the Armed Forces and to those who lost their lives.
