Forget-me-knots: Howard & Fred's story

Howard Denyer met fellow Scout Fred Parker in Guildford, Surrey where they both shared a love of knots.

Jackie Churchyard, Howard’s sister, tells us: ‘As enthusiastic knot devotees, they spent many years explaining, pioneering and touring Scout and Guide Groups in the Home Counties as well as Women’s Institutes and schools etc. – in fact, any who would listen!’

‘Howard and Fred were regulars at Gilwell Reunions and always had plenty of visitors eager to try knots at their stall. Sadly, Howard died in March 2015 aged 66 and Fred passed away in June 2015 aged 93. Many will remember them. Great Scouts. R.I.P.’
