WJ'55 Masthead Scouts Canada

In memory of Geoffrey Forshaw

Geoffrey Forshaw was a Scout in Reddish, United Kingdom. At age 15, he became the youngest person to become a Queen's Scout. At age 17, he attended the 8th World Jamboree in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada. Just four weeks after returning home from the jamboree, he was out cycling, an activity for which he had earned a proficiency badge. He was struck by a car and killed. In memory of Geoffrey Forshaw, 17, Queen's Scout.

Thanks to Geoffrey's nephew, John Mulvey. If anyone has photos or memories of Geoffrey, please send them to us to be given to his family.
