The Independent Online
YOUR "In the News" article on Prince Philip (9 March) commented: "It is unlikely he will ever have a memorial named after him." He already has - the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.

For many years I have worked in it as a group leader, and on several occasions have had the pleasure of meeting Prince Philip. In the company of young people from all backgrounds he was attentive, cheerful and remarkably well informed.

If there were a choice between the Albert Memorial and the thousands of young people who have enjoyed the programme of achievement and adventure, I know which the Duke of Edinburgh would happily choose.
