Members of the troop are presented with a white Scout neckerchief which has the City Crest embroidered on the point and presentations take place on an annual basis. Those who achieve the Queen Scout Award have an additional gold bar above the City Crest.

The troop is available to support the Lord Mayor whenever they are requested to assist. More information can be found at: http://www.catvog.org/area/lmo.php
