You may not be aware of it, but the Queen's Baton Relay
is meandering around the Commonwealth en route
to the opening ceremony in Glasgow on 23 July 2014. It left Buckingham Palace on 9 October 2013 and will travel through 70 nations until it reaches Glasgow for the opening ceremony on 23 July 2014. Then we can forget all about it. Who needs the Commonwealth Games?
The Baton Relay is the best bit for the children. Look at this proud little cherub in The Solomon Islands The baton is almost bigger than she is! (CLICK
