A huge congratulations to Cub Scout Zachary Redwood, who was presented a Medal for Meritorious Conduct at a GWS Region event on Sunday, June 19.

You may remember Zach from 2nd Baulkham Hills Cub Pack who not long ago used his CPR skills (learned at Cubs) to save his younger brother Ben from an allergy attack (article here).

Due to this, Zach has been applauded by many for his courageous efforts, including Chief Scout of Australia and Govenor General of Australia, His Excellency General The Hon. Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), who granted him this prestigious award.

The Cub was presented his medal and certificate by Chief Commissioner, Doug Menzies at the GWS Region ARP at Bundilla Scout Camp.
