On Monday the 3rd of September the Baton containing the Queen's message to Brigade conference was received into Cheshire by the 1st Middlewich Company. It was then transferred via the Trent and Mersey canal tow path to Rookery Bridge in Ettiley Heath. The 1st Elworth Company took it over and continued the journey through Cheshire by bike along the canal to Kidsgrove where it was handed over to North Staff's battalion.(see picture gallery) It will give us something else to talk about, apart from our summer camp in Corfe Castle tomorrow evening when we start our 2012/13 session.
