Part of the Scouts on the Moon range.

A fun Scouting badge set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing. Ideal as a Scouting gift, it is also perfect for blankets, while at camp and you're sitting under the stars, it will be an inspirational reminder that Scouts can go far, even to the Moon and back.

On 21 July 1969, two Scouts - Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, took their first steps on the surface of the Moon.  This commemorative badge set and card celebrates their remarkable achievement, as well as those who followed in their footsteps.  In total, 11 of the 12 people who walked on the Moon, were Scouts. 

Their shining example is testament to the skills, courage and determination shown by Scouts everywhere.
