Jacky receives her Silver Acorn

The Silver Acorn was instituted in 1932 as an award to rank between the Medal of Merit and the Silver Wolf. It was originally called the Silver Medal but changed to the Silver Acorn shortly after. It was also worn on the jacket and not around the neck. It was instituted as a St George’s Day Award in 1933 and the decision for it to be worn around the neck was made around 1952.

 

Jacky has recently received her award for 50 years service with the Scout Association and has also now just received the Silver Acorn
