The Great War Challenge Badge

The Great War Challenge

We are members of 1st SHAPE Senior Section and we are based near Mons in Belgium. This was a historically significant location during the First World War and because of this, we decided to create a challenge for Girlguiding members and Scouts to commemorate the Great War.

The 4th August 2014 marked 100 years since the outbreak of the War. Acts of commemoration are expected to continue for the next four years, marked by various events as the centenary is reached.

We hope that this challenge will help commemorate The Great War by enabling you to step back in time and reflect on events that took place. We also hope that you will have fun and learn about these at the same time.

Thank you for your interest in our ‘Great War Challenge’ and we hope you enjoy completing it!

We recommend the following activities should be completed to gain the badge:

  • Rainbows/Beavers – 1 from each section
  • Brownies/Cubs – 1 from each section and 1 other
  • Guides/Scouts – 1 from each section and 2 others
  • Senior Section/Ventures/Leaders – 1 from each section and 3 others
