May 2011: Peter Staples' Scouting Honour
The Norwich Evening News dated 8 May 2011 carried the following article:
'The Scouting UK Chief Commissioner awarded a Norwich resident with the second highest scouting award, on a visit to Norfolk at the weekend. Wayne Bullpitt awarded the bar to Silver Acorn to Peter Staples, of Saint Philips Road, Norwich, for 'specially distinguished service to the Scout Movement over many years.'
Peter was (almost) lost for words!
