This group came with a 1937 World Jamboree patch. I am uncertain if any of these are Scout patches. The two on the left appear French. I would appreciate any information about them.

The one on the bottom right - Bellerophon on Pegasus - in light blue on maroon square is British Army Airborne Forces

Top right -yellow crest of a bird. The nearest I can find for this is the 5th Urmston Group.

Yellow Bird is indeed 5th Urmston (Aquilifer) Scout Group, Urmston & District, Gtr Manchester West.

Comment posted on Thursday 11th of July 2019 by Kurt Hansen
Rather than Urmston, I have been told that this is a Bedfordshire badge. It matches picture number 8 in the virtual collection.

I have been given this by a friend whose dad was a scouter. He found it after he passed away and knows nothing about it. It looks aged but is in good condition. How can I tell if it original?
Is it valuable?

Comment posted on Monday 1st of July 2019 by Peter
As it says "World Jamboree 1967" it's 52 years old. Fairly sure this is the repro issue if so may be worth 20 - 30p


Comment posted on Tuesday 2nd of July 2019 by Adam
Is the back cloth or plastic? If plastic it's the repro. It looks to be an original though. Unfortunately they made tons and tons of these as 50+ years later they can be very easily found and in near perfect condition (at least here in the USA). They are also not valuable, you'll get maybe 5 dollars if you are lucky.

Could this be a scout badge please?

Comment posted on Saturday 6th of July 2019 by Richard Spearing
if you turn the badge 90 degrees to the right, you will see a triangular barge flag from a sailing club with appropriate additions.

So in answer to their question, no it is not a scout badge. Sad to say I cannot tell them which sailing club it is as there are thousands.

BSA Exploring
Left is "Apprentice"
Right looks to be "Gold" could be "Bronze" if the thread is bronze not gold like it appears to be.

Rank order is
Apprentice
Bronze
Gold
Silver (Badge Ref 1847 above)

Any ideas

Comment posted on Monday 10th of June 2019 by Fred Eardley
Whilst I don't know what these are, as DEUTSCH is the German word for German, and as red and white are the colours of Austria, which is German speaking, I assume these could be Austrian badges of some sort.

Comment posted on Tuesday 11th of June 2019 by Adam
Top - BSA German Interpreter Strip

Rest are BSA Air Scout Badges
UL - Navigator

This is I believe the Merchant Navy cap badge. Nice example would be interested if you don't collect them.

Hello. Is this a Scout or Guide badge? Kangaroo Patrol? It has a crescent buttonhole fitting on the reverse and R No 5322** on the reverse of the flag staff which dates the design at least from 1908/09.

Comment posted on Tuesday 4th of June 2019 by Alan
Yes, it is as you describe.

Comment posted on Tuesday 4th of June 2019 by John
Yes - early UK Scout Patrol lapel badge for non-uniform wear.
Issued in brass and for some patrols in white metal for Patrol Leaders.
Nice badge!

Comment posted on Sunday 2nd of June 2019 by TONY DUNN
There isn't one because this is not a uniform badge. It was an Group activity dress badge worn by the British School Scout Group in Riyadh in the 1990s on their green activity tee shirts for games etc.

Issued in 1993 it was used until the Group closed due to the start of the first Gulf War.

First Gulf War was 1990/91 so possibly predates that taking into account Tony's comments

Any ideas on this badge, I was thinking it could be a Scout and Guide Group badge. but any information would be useful.

Comment posted on Monday 8th of July 2019 by john
I have one in my collection as Russian Orthodox Scout & Guide Association, although I am far from certain. There are 30 or so Russian Scout Associations (Regional & National). It has the look & style of a UK badge, so the badge was perhaps sponsored / organised in the UK?

The award comes from Canada in the form of a medal.

I cannot tell you what it is called, yet, but one of our Scout Active Support members in Hampshire has one.

Email me direct after Sunday and I will try to have an answer for you
