I became a Guide in Middlesex in 1924 and from then on led a very active life in the Guide Movement ... and worked with blind people. During the period I worked in the Publications Dept. at CHQ I saw the Chief Guide on a number of occasions, and I have never ceased to marvel at her wonderful memory despite the many thousands of people she met. In May 196? she came to Middlesex East's County Rally at Alexandra Palace when to my complete amazement I heard my name called during the presentation of awards and the Chief hung around my neck the Oak Leaf.... I thank God for Guiding and the great and enduring contributions Lady Baden-Powell made to girls all over the world and I hope her work will never be forgotten. She was a real Guiding Star and a very great lady.
