Local scouts brave the elements to solve royal puzzle

On Sunday, 26th March, 30 Scouts and six leaders from 3rd Salisbury Sea Scouts, 1st Alderbury and 4th Salisbury (Harnham) Scout Troops took part in a District Navigation Exercise out of Abbotts Well in the New Forest.

The object was to navigate to 14 locations to find a tent peg with a letter written on it that had been placed at a specific map grid reference. The letters could then be used to spell ‘God save the King’.
There was a rather soggy start as the scouts had to pick their way across a flooded area but soon reached higher ground, the weather brightened up and the scouts had a
great day.
