Why this is important to Raff
Major Baden Powell- (Raffs Grandfather)
This is a picture of our Marketing Manager Raff Baccus’s son at Westminster Abbey to commemorate 100 years since the start of WW1.
He is wearing the medals of his great-grandfather, Major Baden Powell. On the day, many ex-servicemen came to speak to him about the medals he was wearing. One of the medals had single bronze oak leaf, this is where ‘A member of the armed forces mentioned in dispatches is one whose name appears in an official report written by a superior officer and sent to the high command, in which his or her gallant or meritorious action in the face of the enemy is described’.
Major Baden Powell fought in many countries around the world for over 30 years.
It was an extremely proud day for Raf’s family to represent his family’s history and memories but especially proud for Raff’s young son Malik.
