It is with a saddened heart that I write to inform of Roger Plumb’s passing in the early hours of Wednesday 13th January. He had battled cancer for some time.

Roger served Scouting in Hastings, Rye and District for many years, mainly with the 24th Hastings, where he was the Scout Leader and the Group Scout Leader. In the past he was ADC (Scouts) and more recently was Duke of Edinburg coordinator. He was a current member of the District Executive, upon which he had served for a long time.

Roger achieved one of the highest awards in Scouting, the Silver Wolf, “for services to Scouting of the most exceptional nature”.


He will be greatly missed.

Peter Walker.
