As part of the Our World Challenge Badge, the cubs met with a veteran of the first Gulf War.
Michael Dale MBE, scout leader of 3rd Tynemouth Scouts pictured left, gave a talk to the cubs about the history of the Royal British Legion and the poppy appeal.
He followed this with a talk about his time as a member of the Royal Military Police in the first Gulf War.
The cubs joined in with the presentation by answering Michael’s questions about the history of WW1 & 2 and talking about their own family histories.
They then enjoyed trying on the army equipment that Michael had brought with him.
