Bosele is a town in the Central African Republic. The area was a French Colony up to 1959/60.

On 1 January 1966, following a swift and almost bloodless overnight military coup, Colonel Jean-Bédel Bokassa assumed power as president of the Republic.

Whether the badge date commemorates the new heirachy, I do not know. The boundary map on the badge is similar to the current CAR but the border has changed over the years, due to civil wars.

This is Botswana 1966 Independence Jamboree, held at Botsele. If you check out a map of the country its the same shape shown.

Found on a Scout blanket (in New Zealand) with other Cub/Scout badges from 1950's. Curious to know if there are any others and if so, where they were used.

This looks like a print version of the leaping wolf. It used to be worn on the right side of the chest of the Cub uniform if I recognise it correctly!

This is an incorrect version of the Group badge of the 70th Coventry (St Martin's) Group, Charterhouse District, Coventry Scout County. The actual one has the triangle the other way around so it fits the point of the scarf. The Group think it was produced in error and a few samples got out from the manufacturer.

Comment posted on Wednesday 2nd of May 2018 by Martin Honor
This is a Royal Naval rating's branch or trade badge for, I think, a Radio Telegraphist/Operator. The lack of stars shows it was worn by a junior rating (Ordinary Seaman equivalent) who has not yet qualified for the next higher rate.
One star - qualified as Able Seaman equivalent
Star above and one below - qualified for Leading rate.
Crown above - qualified for Petty Officer

UK/LNK 3 Diocese of London - Church of England

Linked external organisations

Worn by Church of England sponsored groups in the Diocese of London - 45mm wide, shiny red. What I was told many years ago was that it became a group badge - 42mm wide - matt red. Perhaps someone from London might be able to confirm this or otherwise.

Comment posted on Monday 2nd of April 2018 by John Ball
4th Kenton St Mary's, a Church of England sponsored group in Stanmore District have always worn this badge. Currently it is worn as a scarf badge - you can see it on the scarf in a couple of photos on their web-site.

Worn on an individuals' Scout Jacket - IF you wore one - in Australia circa 1980; However, if may have been on universal sale through other Countries' Scout Shops too, seeing as it has the world logo on it.

Glad to assist. This is from the Scout Shop souvenir badge set issued 1958, primarily in state of NSW, then possibly across various Australian states. It surfaced initially at 6th Australian Jamboree, 1960/61 at Lansdowne, Sydney NSW which is why there are still a few about. Found on old Camp Shirts. It is NOT an old District badge.

Comment posted on Tuesday 13th of March 2018 by edwin
badge is rather out of focus, making it hard to see the design. try taking photo directly above badge or using a scanner.


Comment posted on Saturday 17th of March 2018 by Fred Eardley
This is a badge of the US military. It is that of the 225th Engineer Brigade, US Army.

Small black on white printed strip. S.A. could be South Africa or South Australia (or something else). Need confirmation of which and also to what event it was used for.

I obtained an old Swiss scout shirt probably 1950's, on it mainly African bafges, of those pictured I do not know what they are can anyone help? maybe the green one with compass is North durban?
and the AEF maybe Afrique Equatoriale france (Congo?)

Comment posted on Sunday 11th of February 2018 by Tony Dunn
Top left is Tunisa membership. S.Durban as you say. You could be right on AEF although not sure AEF is Congo. Either way, I collect French Colones so if you don't collect them I am sure we could do a deal. Its a good badge if it is AEF.

Belt Buckle made of thin tin plate.
is this British?

Comment posted on Monday 29th of January 2018 by Alan
Yes, I think British, but not an official one. You rarely see these on belts, so I suspect they were made to be used for leather craft projects.


Comment posted on Tuesday 30th of January 2018 by Gregory Cohen
This is definitely a UK belt buckle - I discovered a small number of these belt buckles back in the 1990's from a District Badge Secretary and I think I have now swapped them all apart from the one in my collection (this may account for the mint ones circulating).
However, like Alan, I have seen really battered examples on UK Scout belts.
I do not believe that the buckle was manufactured to accompany one's leather craft work.
The buckle shows a fleur-de-lys-de-lys, without stars, which may indicate a very early buckle. However, the words 'GOOD LUCK' leads me to believe that it might have been produced for a Group's/District's Overseas Scout Expedition (I would have said 'for a Jamboree contingent' but surely they would have added the word 'Jamboree').
I'm always looking to trade UK Scout & Guide belt buckles.

The scans I have of the Group badges of 1st Shape all show the shield on a rectangular background. Your badge looks fairly modern so it could be the latest version.

There were 4 of these group/island badges produced : Burray, Dounby, Kirkwall and Shapinsay.

Kirkwall shows St Magnus Cathedral which belongs to the people.

the ball is for the Uppie v Downie ball game played through the streets of Kirkwall between the top of the castle walls and the sea.

The 4 badges mentioned including this one are spoof badges

Am sure I got mine from the Glasgow Scout Shop, as Group badges

Comment posted on Friday 1st of December 2017 by Fred Eardley
I was in contact with the District some years ago, and there was no suggestion that these were produced as 'spoof' badges. All of them were designed by Neil Johnstone, Area Secretary, and Ian Mcleod, the then Area Commissioner, as Group badges for the individual Groups.

The top right is indeed a Cub membership - from the German Catholic association - "Deutsche Pfadfinderschaft Sankt George" worn from 1966 to 1982 (?)

The Scottish flag was widely worn), but is an unofficial version before the official named issue.

Section badges from the British Pathfinder Scouts Association. Red- Rovers. White-Scouts. Maroon-Seniors. Yellow-Cubs. The Association existed from 1993 to 1998 when it was wound up following the death of its founder. Badge stocks passed to the British Boy Scouts for disposal.

This badge was with a lot of 1940s/50s Canadian and American Boy Scout badges including 1955 World Jamboree stuff. The motto translates as Sign Of The Faith and appears to be linked to the Institute Of The Brothers Of The Christian Schools. However, I cannot find any reference to whether it is Scout related. Any ideas? Thanks.

This is 47/5 Stoke-on-Trent & Newcastle (type 'D' onwards).
When I wore it, we called it a 'Division' badge and wore it alongside the County badge, with the district (Tunstall District in my case, which is now Potteries North) centred below the two, so we wore three badges on our arm.

The style of eagle is definately the German eagle although the German one is usually black on gold with red claws (see the older versions of their national strip, with the eagle in the middle of their flag.)

I am wondering if it is French Scouts (SdF) in Germany as there are such Groups. The Cross of Jerusalem shown is the SdF symbol and the red white and blue could represent the French colours on the German eagle. Just a guess though. Francois Poumaloux would know.

There were two national recognised Scout Assns in Brazil in the 1960s. One was the Union of Brazilian Scouts which had a blue globe with stars on it in the middle of the FdL.

The other Assn is this one, sorry I cannot remember the name. They joined together in the 1970s to form the Brazilian Scout Federation

Have you checked out Northern Ireland? The UK Scout Assn were experimenting there with (would you believe) a pre-Beaver age range which they called Squirrels.
This was when George Purdy was Chief Scout.
If not N.I., maybe they took the name from another Assn who had a pre Beaver (or Beaver) section called that?

The first is a longstanding query, still to be identified.
The second is 1st Murton (Holy Trinity) Group, Seaham District, Durham County?

Comment posted on Friday 26th of May 2017 by edwin
the silver on black "drum sticks" is from the 1st. Bonnington group from Nottingham. then as Fred says for the 2nd one.

Comment posted on Tuesday 30th of May 2017 by edwin
I have described the design on the Bonnington Group Badge as Drum Sticks, however I'm not entirely sure that's what they are. I think they might be what was used to ram the shot down the
barrels of old artillery pieces.
I sure somebody can inform us of exactly what they sticks were used for.

Can't offer you details about the group but if it is Aussie then the 5 sections Brown (Joey) Green (Cub) Grey (Scout) Black (Venturer) Red(Rovers). Try contacting them.

This is a BSA Troop patch for Transatlantic Council Troop 73.
I have the patch and also a printed scarf with the same logo with a large 7 and small 3.
The 7 seems to be acting like an arrow to northern Germany perhaps showing its location, but I dont know exactly where.

This is a Iranian flag but it may be for a ommemorative event. Not sure on the rest but the last word is definately Arabic numerals for the year 1332. This would be in the Muslim calender which is differnt to the Christian callander. Google it to find equivilent Christian date.

This is a Lion Cub badge from Iran, there is also a blue issue. I am not sure if there are other colours.

Comment posted on Wednesday 3rd of May 2017 by John Lewis
Yes, confirmed as IRAN Cub - I also have a Tiger version, so they are probably both Cub Scout ranks

Would love to know what these badges are. One says BBS and one says BBC, British Boy Scouts?? Thanks for your help. These were both found framed together. One appears older than the other.

Comment posted on Monday 24th of April 2017 by Richard Spearing
Just a thought. They could be school badges. The one with BBS being a Secondary School which then became Comprehensive, hence BBC. I have no idea what the BB stands for. Sorry!

A region and historical country, part of Czechoslavkia in 1947. Morava is the Czech name for Moravia in the eastern-most part of the now Czech Republic. Its capital is Brno. Officially abolished in 1949 it is still acknowledged as a specific land in CZ and its people, the Moravians consider themselves different to the Czechs (bit like the Cornish.)

French. The names are the main towns/cities that make up Cote d' Azure Province. Its most likely a tourist badge taken by Scouts to swop at the Jamboree. Most of the FR/SDF/PRO were not issued before this Jamboree.

Comment posted on Wednesday 15th of February 2017 by Gill Stewart
The hat badge is an ordinary one. The PL's badge has an additional curved bar underneath and is therefore irregular in shape. The wings also went out in 1968. As far as I know the navy badges came in in the fifties and not the sixties.

I think this is to do with the wood badge but any information very welcome

Comment posted on Monday 30th of January 2017 by James
In1967 the advance party introduced a badge same size as this for holders of the wood badge with 2 beads on it. The one with one bead was for those who had completed their basic training. This was because between 1967 and 1977 leaders wore a green tie. Between these years the actual beads were worn on special occasions as Gilwell Reunions and wood badge presentations

Comment posted on Monday 30th of January 2017 by James
I meant to say that it was quite common for the single bead badge being sewn on upside down with the knot at the top!

Hi Gerry

Could it be an old colonial Medal of Merit or Thanks badge from New Zealand from the late 1930s?
The ferns (NZ national emblem) around the badge and English motto are pretty distinctive. Britain and its colonies used a Swastica (Flyfot) for these badges until the Nazis came to power and destroyed its good meaning and many places changed the emblem they used. red/white/blue fits with the NZ flag.

Gerry - I have found that the first known issue of the British medal of merit was exactly the same as this except it said FOR MERIT across the centre. The British one had a plain white ribbon first. No stars make it early, the UK version being in use by 1912. Have you tried USA? I think France would be in French.

Hi Gerry

Could it be an old colonial Medal of Merit or Thanks badge from New Zealand from the late 1930s?
The ferns (NZ national emblem) around the badge and English motto are pretty distinctive. Britain and its colonies used a Swastica (Flyfot) for these badges until the Nazis came to power and destroyed its good meaning and many places changed the emblem they used. red/white/blue fits with the NZ flag.

Is this a version of the badge for Scotland?

Comment posted on Sunday 27th of November 2016 by John
There are a number of varieties of these (St Andrew's flag with Scout badge superimposed). They were worn in Scotland (perhaps unofficially?) before the Scottish flag became standard uniform wear (without the Scout badge).
Varieties exist with different sized badges & some date to pre APR (1967) with "Boy Scouts logo"

Comment posted on Sunday 27th of November 2016 by eric ellmes
Thanks John confirmed my thoughts

Comment posted on Sunday 27th of November 2016 by James
The badges with the large pre Apr and large post Apr badges as on the one illustrated were non uniform badges produced by Scotland. The one with a small scout badge completely in the white cross was an error and sold off at Gilwell.

Please do you know what the small square badges are? I was told they are genuine vintage guide badges, but I cannot find out what they are. Thanks.

Comment posted on Wednesday 16th of November 2016 by Fred Eardley
The two small square brown items are military officers 'pips' worn on the epaulettes to denote their rank - 0ne pip is worn by a 2nd Lieutenant. Two by a Lieutenant, and three by a Captain.
I would doubt that there is any connection with Guides.

Comment posted on Thursday 5th of January 2017 by Jennifer
It isn't the first time I have seen Brownie/Guide badges for sale with these 'pips'- a recent auction on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COLLECTION-OF-VINTAGE-GIRL-GUIDE-SEW-ON-PATCHES-9-/182392693076?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=XQ4qI6mRwQrP9BRXHea%252FzkRwLpM%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc has one as well, in different colours to these. I've definitely seen a previous auction with them too.

I know that doesn't help - but it could support the notion that Guides or Brownies wore them at some point?

I don't think this is so much a Scottish badge as a reference to St Andrew the disciple.
St Andrew of course, wasn't even a Scot but a fisherman from Galilee, which could explain the fish. So Scotland is probably a red herring!
And of course, you get St Andrew's schools and Scout Groups in other parts of UK as well as Scotland

Hi Edwin

I have a badge vertually identical to this one except it is woven but gold on blue and bound in blue. I will send you a scan.

All these badges are supposed to be diamond shape when worn not square.

Mine also is unidentified although I was told it was a BSWE Group. But I think they might be getting mixed up with the white on red Westfalen horse which is widely used in Germany. Some did suggest my gold on blue was Neinberg Group, Germany BSWE but unconfirmed.

Comment posted on Friday 16th of December 2016 by Gill Stewart
This is probably stock made in Britain for one of the member countries. The badge in the centre is probably a stylised trefoil. The first UK and general commonwealth belt is the one with the rose, daffodil, etc, and that was available before 1920,later replaced with the one which was in style until the sixties.

I think it is from Canada. Is it a Group badge or a District not listed?

Comment posted on Monday 17th of October 2016 by Tony Dunn
The trumpeter in the middle is the symbol of the Latter Day Saints and 'Stake' is also a LDS term. A Stake is more than one local church grouped together, usually 5 or more. So it is unlikely to be a Group Badge. But whether it is a LDS District within a Scout District or one in its own right, I do not know.(see NZ/CM19 Tamaki Stake and 22.)

These are badges of naval signal flags. There are 26 flags, one for each letter and the first 10 flags are also numbered 0-9. Up to 3 flags can be used to make 999 numbered words, the meaning of each number is found in the flag code book. The letters you have, left to right are:
F C A G & H.
I was hoping that they would run aphabetically for patrol A B C etc but the letters you have does not work! Unless they had 8 patrols and you have some missing.

Afterthought: Perhaps they are the INITIAL letters of the names of the patrols, maybe water or sea birds?

Comment posted on Monday 5th of September 2016 by Tony Dunn, BSO
I dont think this is Pitcairn because this is an antartic scene and Pitcairn is a lot warmer than that! Pitcairn is where the mutineers from the Bounty landed.

Pitcairn comes under Rest of the World District in BSO as a British territory but only has 5 Scouts, the total eligible popoulation. It is administered by Scouts NZ for us as the closest country, who provide a Scouter on 6 month secondments who is always a policeman. But I said, I doubt it is Pitcairn.

As Fred says, this is an Army badge for Catterick Garrison but it was also worn as the Scout badge for Catterick Camp Rover Crew also known as the Richmondshire Rover Crew. It comprised both RAF & Army soldiers, plus civilians.

The earlier Scout version c1942 is also the Army printed badge and a small woven version on white, bound in green is still worn by the 1st Catterick Garrison Scout Group.

This is the rank badge used in many Spanish (and Portuguese) speaking countries which they call CABELLERO which translates as "Knight", and often refers to St George in countries where he was the Scout patron saint. It was the top award like Queen Scout.

Austria also used a version they called 'Georgesritter' (Knight of St George) using a helmet but it was different to this.

Don't know the country but green and yellow was popular on Brazilian rank badges

Most Spanish speaking and S American countries ues the motto Siempre Listo. I think this is most likely Brazil, perhaps Portuguese.

Comment posted on Thursday 8th of September 2016 by Tony Dunn
Sorry Steve, cancel that last entry. The language is Spanish. I have just realised where I know it from. It is the chorus line of a famous Spanish Scouting song called "Buscad en la manada." So its a Spanish or S American badge not Portuguese.

They are Dutch, certainly worn by Scouts; dont know about Guides. The one on the left is a Tenderfoot, the one with a '+' on the right was worn by Dutch Catholic Scouts. There is also one with an 'X' with a green FdL on the middle for Protestant scouts. Cubs had a green background, scouts had this kharki backgbround. Both date from the 1950s. Nice condition.

The style of this badge with the outurned tips to the FdL is very similar to other old rank badges I have from the SCOUTS DE MEXICO c1970s. I have this same badge design in ribbon form on a silver grey and also dark green background with both with a red FdL outlined in yellow. Perhaps the red one is a Rover 1st Class? They could not use red on red which could be why it is black?

Honduras used the same style of FdL with curved tips but most examples are Mexican.

The word 'conscripcion; is Portuguese, translating literally to English as 'conscription'. However unless Scouting in the country concerned was compulsory (like in Indonesian schools), I dont think it means that, but literally: 'con'=(with) 'scrip'=(words). Or to put it another way. a '(signed up)' member of Scouting."

If its another one of yours from South America Steve, the obvious candidate by far for Portuguese is Brazil as a 'Year of the Scout' issue.

The script looks like Bengali which would make it from Bengladesh. The colours are the Bengladesh colours and the poor quality of ribbon matches many manufacture on the Indian sub continent. No idea what Desert Scout is though, as Bengal is better known for jungle and fishing.

For what its worth.
I collect VSU & ESU badges and I have had this one about 5 years. I told Fred it maybe Erith as it was the only Viper ESU I could find on Google at the time, but there was no picture of a badge.
Since then I have found Viper ESUs in Hants (claret scarf white stripe shown without badge) Another in Wilts which was formed much later(2014), another in Cotswold Vale, plus Milton Keynes. All don't show a badge. Trouble is Erith Viper ESU have disappeared, maybe closed?

Comment posted on Wednesday 20th of July 2016 by Fred Eardley
Tony,
It met at 2nd Erith HQ, and although I have tried to email them to ask, I didn't get a reply, so perhaps they have also closed down.

Comment posted on Tuesday 13th of September 2016 by Claire
This is for Viper ESU. Was part of Erith and Crayford, GLSE, (2nd Erith).

The badge is the symbol of the National Trust. I have this version in these same colours which was (is?)worn by the 1st Lacock Group, Mid Wilts District, Wiltshire. The village has many old buildings and much belongs to the Trust, which sponsored the group for some years in the 1990s, and gave them permission to wear the badge.

There is a Ribbon & and a metal issue of this listed in BIGAE. I have not come across one for Scouts or at least not the SA. which is why IF it's uk it might be either BPSA or one of the other Non Recognised assocs.

Comment posted on Friday 1st of July 2016 by Bob
Definitely not BPSA as that association did not start until 1967. ,
UK guide versions were metal and ribbon.
This looks like AUS/UNC/SC 3 or NZ/UNC 57/1. But as BP was a world wide figure there could be similar from other counties which I don't collect

Before this issue, Malta wore the half bound Union Flag with a red on white name strip underneath with the word 'MALTA'. The 'MALTA G.C.' badge varieties were first issued after the war from c1947 up to 1964, when the blue behind the George Cross was taken off the shield and the G.C. label dropped. The George Cross was awarded unusaully to the whole population of the Malta for their courage and resistance to constant heavy bombing and blockade by the Nazis during World War II

This is NOT an Australian Group badge.
"Pacific" was issued in 1957 as a SWAP badge, in a series with others. I can identify these were released commemorating 50 Years Scouting sold by Australian Scout shops, including at Australian National Corroborees & Jamborees through to early 1960s. It explains why many ended up in UK as that was the centre for trades. I found a copy of the very first "AUSTRALIAN SCOUT BADGES" book, issued May 1964 by an old Badger, Jeff "Rusty" Irons from Tasmania, showing references most of these badges then known/in existence. So far I have found several separate 'series' of them. Send me your photocopies by email if I can assist further.

Design was said to show a gear change symbol as Ford cars were made in Dagenham but this is not true.

It is the old cattle brand for Dagenham. Cattle brands are popular on EC82 Districts. Walthamstow, Ilford North & Leyton all show cattle brands.

The badge actually needs turning 90' clockwise, It will then show a lower case 'd' attached to an upper case 'E' for 'D'agenham 'E'ast

Comment posted on Thursday 19th of May 2016 by Peter Brady
Actually it appears I may be wrong with my information, oops

The Dagenham badge has a line with three nodules above a brand marking(as similar brand badges in ED82. This represents a CROWN because cattle were kept on royal land (Epping Forest).

This is the Dilworth School Group Badge, Auckland.
The School was set up in 1894 by James Dilworth for Boys from good families with limited means, it is a boarding school still going strong selecting boys from families where they are experiencing financial or personal hardship regardless of race or ethnicity they boys are offered a life-changing full scholarship which includes free board, tuition, sports, music even scouts all funded by the Dilworth Trust, which still owns a large chunk of Auckland CBD and surrounding suburbs.

The two larger badges are standard promise badges. The blue for sea rangers, the red for land rangers. The small one is a non-uniform land ranger. Datewise, the two without any wording are from approx 1921-1931. The small one is from between approx. 1931 and 1968.

I thought it was a smart looking badge that many a group would of been proud to wear, now we learn it was designed for use as a progress badge but it's still a great looking badge pity it is not a group or even a district badge.

These are very similar arms to the Tresbuts family, Barons of Wartre in Holderness, Lincs who bore: 'Argent, trois boutz d'eau, Gules', a pun on their name and estate. Boutz d'eau (waterbags) are the golden emblems on the blue which were leather bags in which water was carried, dating from Crusader times. The last Tresbuts heiress married into the de Ros(Roos, Roose or Ross)family of Laxton Notts who bore various variations of these arms. The Roos married into the Macclesfields of Maer, Staffs who owned Chesterton & Maer estates (very close to you) as well as in Notts up to c1570. I know all this as I am a descent of the Macclesfields.
Doesn't tell you the Group but at least you know whose arms they are and what they show.

COELMUND is a medieval first name, but it is not common. I can give you two leads.

There was a Coelmund, a famous medieval bishop of Rochester, Medway, Kent. So it may be an ESU or VSU from Rochester?

Chelmsley Wood in East Birmingham also brings up references to the name, the Chelmsley bit is thought to originate from someone of this name who owned the land in medieval times. It does have a tree on the badge and Chelmsley is better known in Scouting circles as the site of the old Birmingham County Campsite called Yorks Wood which was built over in the 1960s.

Can anyone tell me whether this is s Scouting badge or a Military one? The colours match the Grapple Rover Crew badges and flags, and from its size it could be a blazer badge.

Comment posted on Thursday 24th of March 2016 by Tony Dunn
The only Scout badges are the black on yellow shield felt badges (with and without an 'X') and two round badges also in felt (one orange, one blue,) which were Rover patrol badges. A pale blue ribbon Scout badge was issued as a swop badge/fundraiser in the 1960s.

All Christmas Island badges were based on the same design which was the Operation Grapple logo of the A bomb test. It can be found on a number of non-Scout badges including blazer badges in various colours. It seems the same punch card was used for many of them as they are the same size of embroidery and style as the Scout issues. This one looks like a blazer badge, also found in red.

Comment posted on Friday 25th of March 2016 by S Griffiths

Comment posted on Sunday 17th of April 2016 by Tony Dunn,
The gold FdL looks very similar to the Australian ones. Although it looks like an RAF roundel, I dont know of any RAF camp starting with 'Leyn.' I dont think it is an archery badge as the colours are wrong order for that. Of course it might also be Canadian. Sorry - not much help.

It could be a military badge.

Comment posted on Sunday 21st of February 2016 by Peter
It came with a small collection of Scout & Guide badges so I am sure it is one or the other!!
I have a ribbon issue and a 1/2B issue both being Scout and this one is the same manufacture style. The 1/2b is in the variety book.

Comment posted on Thursday 25th of February 2016 by Lorna
The Guide one should read 'United Kingdom' in yellow/gold lettering underneath.

Comment posted on Friday 26th of February 2016 by Peter
Not all Guide badges were named. They used some of the Scout white issues before the blue. They also used a blue 1/2b and a ribbon both with no name.

Comment posted on Tuesday 9th of February 2016 by Tony Dunn
Not convinced.
The first issue was in 1928 which is the small felt one named BRITISH SCOUTS EGYPT I have seen none without the full title, even independent issues by Rover Crews were named. Besides, the Sphinx is facing the wrong way on this one. There are military cap badges similar to this but I dont know the regiment, but Fred Eardley will. I am pretty sure that it is an Army issue.

Yes it is Taiwan jamboree 45year rememberence day, sorry do not know which year.

Comment posted on Tuesday 9th of February 2016 by Lorna
I read it as meaning 1954 and something about a third national (possibly) jamboree. This would tally with their restart in Taiwan in 1950.

Comment posted on Tuesday 9th of February 2016 by Alan
According to the catalogue :-)

There was a 3rd National Jamboree in 1956, this was a continuation of the China national jamborees, the first held in 1936. Unfortunately there is no description of the badge.


Comment posted on Thursday 11th of February 2016 by Lorna
Apologies. I was wrong- you were both right. Reads as 'China's third national Boy Scout [thrifty and busy/busy and great?] Jamboree- Forty-five years of the Republic of China'.

This is a UK Group badge and depicts the Cock and Pynot from the Revolution House at Whittington. It has been used by two Groups. First used by the 2nd New Whittington, Chesterfield District, Derbyshire this group closed in 1988. Following on in 1990 then permission was sought for the 1st Whittington to use the same badge, this was approved ref. 14/193

There are two varieties of this badge; this is the 2nd one in use c1998.
1st variety approved by HQ 15/2/1984 is similar but the white is cloth not woven and the triangle (Army emblem for 1st Armoured Division) is slightly taller shape. Colours match the scarf which was halved red/white. The design was replaced by the Army badge RED jereboa/desert rat on black c2011 to 2015.
All German Groups became EXT in 2015 when military moved out.

Comment posted on Wednesday 27th of January 2016 by james
This badge design goes back almost a hundred years. It dates back certainly to when the black and white County of Edinburgh & Leith ceased to be worn and may have been used before it. Certainly the earliest Edinburgh County badge which predated the black and white one was the same design but without the 'and Leith' and had the ribbon extended upwards onto which the groups number was added in metal numerals.

I believe you will find that this badge 1141 is the 1967 version of badge 1142. The teepee forms that A and the two poles create the V. Both these badges were sold at the scout shop at Downe campsite for camp blankets when I lived in Kent and are in my early collection. If you look at badge 1140 you will see that this also gives a similar shape but no year number. What I do not know for certain is the event to which they were for. Not much help but I hope it points you in the right direction.

This is the group badge for 61st Portsmouth (St. Nicholas) and the anchor on the badge represents St. Nicholas who amongst other things, is patron saint of sailors. The wavy lines represent the sea round Portsea Island. The mitre is because St. N was a bishop. The group was founded in 1933 and have had the badge since the mid 1990's. Hope this helps.

I am certain that this badge is from Malaya before it became Malaysia. The elements show the distinctive 11 pointed gold sun on blue-black of Malaya, a sunray representing each state, (Malaysia has 14). The waves are part of the arms of Penang representing the Straits of Malacca and the gold lion 'passant regardant' on red is the crest for Singapore.
However I cant find a flag or arms to fit exactly. It could be a school/university badge from that time or a perhaps a Group badge (not BGA) but definately Malaya - cant help more sorry.

Possibly something to do with the Ivory Coast. Downward pointing elephant tusks are in the flag colours of Cote d'Ivoire and also appear on many Scout badges. No idea what it is though. Looks like it could be a proficiency or merit badge so could be National History or something similar.

Comment posted on Wednesday 2nd of December 2015 by Tony Dunn
Yes, it's African as green/gold/red are the Pan-African colours based on the Ethiopian flag (oldest African state) used on many flags, to which in 1917 Garvey added black to represent the African people.
But maybe the badge is upside down for two reasons: this would make it a crescent and star plus the scimitre which are all Muslim emblems. So the tusks may be a crescent, but only guessing.

Comment posted on Wednesday 2nd of December 2015 by Steve
The black image in the centre looks like an elephant - national emblem of the Ivory Coast. Also there is a Scout emblem at the top which suggests the badge is the correct way up. No wiser what it is though.

That makes sense as my dad also has one in his collection. He spent a year out there and was active with a local group during that time. I suspect he'll have picked his up whilst there. :) Thanks.

Please note that I would say that the red of the badge looks darker in real life than is suggested by this photo. The badge does seem a bit dirty though which maybe the cause.

This is DPSG again but later, between 1957 and 1971. Also were available in ribbon about the same size: silver on green, gold on blue, silver on blue; all with red lines. Would appreciate knowing which is which section if anyone knows.

Comment posted on Friday 11th of December 2015 by Andreas Irmer
Yes, the badge showes the old German DPSG fleur-de-lis, but in the last decades many souvenir badges have been produced: As new as it looks like, I would think, is one of these (see an original at 1097).

There are three colour versions of this as far as I know. Gold on kharki which was Cubs, this one and silver on green which I dont know what section. Anyone?

In 1947 for just a year the first set of DPSG were worn - tenderfoot, 2nd class and 1st class. These were diamond ribbons with the design just in a red outline on dark green.

The badge is FR/SdF. Chocolate background dates this as being used from 1947 to 1952. In 1952 they changed the colour of the shirts to lighter kharki-cream so the background colour changed to match.

But he other coloured shirt worn, navy blue, continued through from 1947 to 1964.

but have no ideal what the event was.

Comment posted on Sunday 18th of October 2015 by FredEardley
Thanks for that, Ed. At least I know it isn't a Group anniversary now, and that BSW stands for Bristol South West. Perhaps someone else can enlighten us as to what event it was for.

Comment posted on Monday 19th of October 2015 by Tony Dunn
A thought, Edwin - would the 2nd Bristol have been in that District? That would explain the big 2 and then it could be their 50th Anniversary?

Comment posted on Wednesday 21st of October 2015 by ed
reference to Tony's question about 2nd. Bristol being in BSW sorry I have no ideal where the 2nd Bristol are/were apart from not BSW. I think the badge was possibly a district camp I can not remember when B South East & B South West merged to for Bristol South.(90/17)
I do not know anybody in BSW to try and gain more info.

Comment posted on Monday 19th of October 2015 by Tony Dunn
I have just checked my Arg/USCA and found my version of B8 is different! It is an 'upside down' curved white plastic strip with a little FdL on what looks like a map outline and REGION BUENOS AIRES, all printed in dull greyish-silver. It looks like it may have fitted underneath a round badge.

This is the old FR/PRO/SDF 26. (PARIS ILE DE SEINE) used until 1964. Scouts de France had rounded bases to their shields whereas EDF favoured squarish shields with a point at the bottom. Some associationn used the same badges though.

Dear Tony, this badge is NOT from German "Bund der Pfadfinderinnen und Pfadfinder" (BdP)! BdP looks very different and never used a cross.

Dear Mike, a spanish origin in possibe, but it is not from "Federación de
Asociaciones Scouts Baden-Powell de España" (FASBP), which looks only in parts similar.

Greece have recenty reissued a lot of its Districts but this one was EXT. Maybe they have reopened it. How long have you had it as it looks new?

This was the fourth variety (no black in design) which was used in the late 1950s. The harbour design for the HK badge goes back to the early 1930s and was replaced in the 1960s with the junks design.

Othona is a sort of multi faith spiritual retreat based at Bradwell on Sea in West Dorset. Its founder, Norman Motley, was an RAF chaplain who started it in 1946 as a place for people to meet for reflection, discussion, and spiritual renewal. They also run activities for school parties. The badge is probably a souvenir badge; there are the remains of a Roman fort nearby hence the design. Google OTHONA and it should come up.

Hi Fred
This is the British colony arms for St Helena. I don't think it's Scout as they wear a double District badge with Ascension Island and this design appears on that. There is Scout Group on the island, 1st Jamestown, but they have never had a Group badge as far as I am aware. I will try and find out but I suspect its another tourist badge. Where did it come from?

Comment posted on Thursday 9th of July 2015 by Fred Eardley
Hi Tony, Thanks for your comments. The badge came to me recently from a good collector friend who thought it might be a group badge.

Comment posted on Monday 20th of July 2015 by Tony Dunn
Half bound or large bound is the COUNTRYMAN collective badge used 1947-1959. The first Senior Scout badges were grouped in related activities under the following 7 collective badges: Athlete, Aviator, Mariner Craftsman, Countryman, Open Air and Scientist. If you passed the requirements for two different water activities you just wore the collective badge for Mariner but with a bar underneath. You could get up to 4 bars (for 5 activities) per badge.
There were also 11 Public Service badges without bars. Most were reissued fully bound between 1952-1959. but are larger than later badges Most designs continued after 1959 when they expanded the badge design range but all these were fully bound and smaller so it is easy to tell the vintage. After 1959 this design fully bound became the CONSERVATION BADGE. They were named Boy Scouts 1947-1964 and named Senior Scouts 1964-1967.

This badge is available at Greater Manchester East's campsite, Linnet Clough for camping at temperatures below zero. It is known as the "polar bear" badge. They also do one with a "hippo" on it for camping in extreme muddy conditions.

Could it stand for 'Venture Scouts Robert Gordon University'? There seems to be mention on 2 web pages of a 16th Aberdeen group. Or maybe Robert Gordon's College- a large private school which has had scout groups in the past?

For what it's worth, VSRGU stands for Venture Scout Ranger Guide Unit, which I believe were mixed Venture and Ranger Units between 1967 and 2002, when I think VSUs changed to ESUs.

Comment posted on Thursday 2nd of August 2018 by Peter Williamson
The 16th Harrogate Venture Scout Ranger Guide Unit was known as the Cheetahs. The badge post dates my time as a member but it's highly likely this was from the unit. VSRGU's were only formed during a fairly short time period. They were mixed units with Scouts and Guides aged 16-21, once the scout association started allowing venture units to accept girls a new mixed units were typically Venture units.

Comment posted on Tuesday 30th of June 2015 by Rob Ludlow
Thew cannon on the badge is a likeness of the cannon that is on display in Welling. The following should help explain everything:
'A large Russian gun is located at Welling corner. This Russian weapon is a 36-pounder carronade (calibre 6.75 inches - weight 17 cwt) of a type used during the Crimean War (1854 to 1860), displayed on a simple wooden replica carriage. The carronade was in service from 1780 to 1860 and is now on loan from the Royal Artillery Museum in Woolwich as a reminder of Welling's early association with the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, when huts at East Wickham were built as homes for munitions workers in the Great War.'

1st Deptford Greater London South

Comment posted on Tuesday 30th of June 2015 by Rob Ludlow
I'm afraid that is slightly incorrect. The correct information is: 2nd Deptford (St Nicholas' & St Luke's), Lewisham District, Greater London South. Originally worn on a black scarf with the yellow cross hand embroidered onto the scarves, the group introduced badge which were upside-down tear shaped pieces of felt with the yellow cross stitched on, then a black rectangular cloth issue. Around the 1960s/70s the group then changed it's scarf colour to Lemon Yellow (which were roundly referred to as dusters) by which time the badge was modified to what we see on the left. The group scarf colour was once again changed about three years ago and is now lemon yellow with black border to incorporate the groups very long history. Unfortunately the badge is currently not in use, but I will be talking to the GSL to see if the group can reinstate it.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the British Scout Federation or Outlanders (1980s?), which ultimately merged with the BBS. I have a red on white nametape which says British Scouts, which I think is from them.

Habbaniya, from the Gilwell sample books. There seem to be a number of varieties of this badge (see the Rover badge catalogue).

Comment posted on Sunday 29th of March 2015 by John A. Roberts
Thanks Alan for your help with the badge ID for Habbaniya.

Comment posted on Monday 11th of May 2015 by Tony Dunn
The reason for the varieties of this badge. RAF Habbaniya was in Iraq in early 1950s. They employed local levies who were confined to the camp for their own safety as they were helping British. Habbaniya British Services Rover Crew formed Scout & Guide groups for the local levy kids which were so popular they had over 500 members. These were all native children with no or very few British kids. Due to numbers there was more than one badge order. Mine is same design but on RAF (sky) blue. Not clear if background colour has any significance. Base closed in 1956 when HQ Near East moved to Cyprus due to insurrection.

Comment posted on Thursday 9th of July 2015 by Helen Dale
My father, Reginal H John Dale - aka Dixie - was stationed at RAF Habbaniya from 51-52. He was almost certainly involved with the Rovers as he had a lifelong involvement with scouting and still active when he died in 1992.

My memories of Habbaniya are of sailing & swimming at the lake!

Probably from the USA. Modoc is the name of a tribe of Native American Indians from California/Oregon. This badge could be from the Boy Scouts Of America and come from a campsite/reservation called Camp Modoc or something issued by Modoc Area Council. It has the appearance of many badges/patches issued in the 1940s through to the 1960s.

The ribbon Chester badge we know about is listed twice in the Gilwell sample books. May 1958 to be worn on the right pocket. Nov 1961, worn on scarf for special district occasions and by district Rover Crew.

This still does not completely rule out this badge as a group or other badge.

This badge came with a late 1950s mixed collection of English, Welsh Scout counties and South African.

Th badge is printed on a white linen diamond and appears to show a tigers leg (or gamb) grasping a red orb. It is obviously taken from a crest as shown by the black & white wreath. So:

Is it Scout Group badge or perhaps military? Interestingly you dont have tigers in South Africa.

Comment posted on Wednesday 19th of November 2014 by Tony Dunn

Hi Fred these look like Senior Scout section patrol badges but they are not British as the British ones had maroon binding. Used 1941-1967; they were named after British explorers and inventors etc and some could be used upside down to give a different colourway and personality. The British colours were:
Red/Yellow (other way up) is Sir Francis Drake. Brown/Gold was David Livingstone.
The British ones are primary colours, no orange or purple. Some countries still use these; I believe Thailand and Cyprus among others, although the patrol names may be different.

These are first issue DFT (Design For Tomorrow) Australian Patrol badges, circa 1970s-80s. They replaced the universally used Patrol shoulder knot colours. Sometimes patrol colour tones and badge bindings varied. Told apart from earlier British Commonwealth Senior Patrol badges as they were smaller sized.

This is probably what the DofE used to issue as an anorak badge or rucksack badge
It is NOT a scout issue badge and the official DofE award badges are metal, army cadets and other organisation produce their own badges but they are more elaborate than this. (I have been involved in management of DofE for nearly 50 years and was Award Officer forScoutsWales for 20yrs)

Pre advance party scouts were permitted to wear on uniform a bound cloth badge of same design and shape as this with a green background and for gold award one with gold lettering and white background. These were obtained, if I remember correctly, through the D of E office. I completed my gold award in 1965 and so wore these badges then though now have the current scout version on uniform.

Small felt badge. Does anybody know anything about this badge? Age? Country? UK? It came from Canada but I don't believe it is Canadian.

Comment posted on Wednesday 29th of October 2014 by dave gray
Yes it says Boy Scouts

Comment posted on Wednesday 29th of October 2014 by james
Looks to me like the old tenderfoot badge - now membership badge - that was worn by many commonwealth countries. Worn in Britain until 1967

The first class was similar but larger.

Comment posted on Monday 3rd of November 2014 by Alan
As it is felt with Boy Scouts, then around late 1920s. Could be from UK or Canada.

I think this is the badge of the 6th/13th Faversham Group, Faversham District, Kent, formed in 1969 by the merger of the 6th and 13th Faversham Groups

Shown in the sample books as Faversham School, which was probably the 4th Faversham, badge approved 1937.

Comment posted on Friday 7th of November 2014 by Tony Dunn
As no-one has replied to this.
It looks to me like a Girl Guide patrol badge for IRIS or LILY patrol, the GG used flowers and birds for patrols in this style.

I don't think its British; the colour of the ring is wrong, but it may be a Commonwealth country. The early British ones were embroidered and then became woven.

Comment posted on Friday 7th of November 2014 by Fred Eardley
Thanks Tony, I thought it looked like a GG Patrol badge myself. Let's hope someone may be able to supply a country before long.

I acquired the nametapes recently, and wondered therefore whether they may be all for the same group.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Edwin,
Thanks for that, but can you confirm the badge is for the Group rather than the camp site, or if the badge is a campsite badge, whether the 1st Miskin also wore the badge as a Group badge?

Comment posted on Saturday 18th of October 2014 by Mike
Hi Fred
The badge is the campsite, even though the group HQ is on the campsite it does NOT wear it as a group badge.
The campsite is jointly administered by Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan and Mid Glamorgan Scout Areas.

Following correspondence with the Group, I have discovered this is a prototype blanket badge for the Kelvedon and Sheering Group in Essex. However, it was not taken up as the Group did not like the design. My example was attached to a card saying that it was acquired in 1988 at 'London Scout HQ'.

Looks like a RAF eagle to me, worn at the top of the uniform sleeve in red on khaki instead of the normal light blue on RAF blue.

Comment posted on Sunday 28th of September 2014 by Tony Dunn
This is the Royal Air Force albatross (sometimes erroneously known as an eagle) which was worn on both shoulders of RAF working dress uniforms. Comes in left and right versions in silver-grey on navy felt or red on kharki background cloth; the kharki was for overseas use.

I have BSA Eagle Scouts from the 1950s and they are nothing like this. They are oval on a kharki swatch unbound with a spread eagle BSA design similar to the 1960 ones.

Comment posted on Thursday 21st of August 2014 by Tony Dunn
COM. SOUTHTON is the latin abbreviation for "County of Southampton". Yes I know it not a county. I have often wondered if it has anything to do with Northampton County? Perhaps in years gone by it was the southern part as in South Hamp(ton)shire? But the term was still in use as late as 1959, see http://www.geog.port.ac.uk/webmap/hantscat/html/daborn1.htm
This also shows your badge design exactly, with the addition of a bell at the top.

Comment posted on Thursday 21st of August 2014 by Richard
Hello Fred. As Tony says, this badge does refer to Southampton and dates back to when Southampton was the County Town of Hampshire (Southamptonshire) before it became a unitary authority and the County Town was changed to the former capital of the Kingdom of Wessex (Winchester). I believe this badge to be used by Hampshire members of the St John Ambulance Association on their uniforms to denote where they come from. More information about the Hampshire badge can be found in the book I wrote for Hampshire Scouts detailing information about the County and District badges of Hampshire.
regards Richard

Is this Scout related? I only have a scan of it so I have no more details.
Could it be a Scout Group badge - possibly Welsh?

Comment posted on Thursday 29th of May 2014 by Alan
I was wondering if it is actually a pack badge, as in 1st Mon(day) pack. Just a guess though.

Comment posted on Thursday 29th of May 2014 by Tony Dunn
Isn't Mon the Welsh for Anglesey?

Comment posted on Friday 30th of May 2014 by Tony Dunn
In Welsh,
"Ynys Mon" means Anglesey Island.
"Mon Mam Cymru" means Anglesy, Mother of Wales.
However I think there should be a ^ over the o on the badge pictured if this is the case.

Comment posted on Saturday 31st of May 2014 by Lorna
It's a judo badge! 'Mon' is the children's equivalent of the Kyu grades (white to brown belt) But it's broken down into more steps. These badges are worn on the hem of uniforms. At 14/16, they can convert the mon grading to the regular adult 'kyu' grade.

Looks like the DSPG (Deutsche Pfadfinderschaft St. Georg) from between 1948-1957.

Comment posted on Thursday 22nd of May 2014 by Andreas Irmer
Steve and Lorena are right its aformer DPSG (germany) badge. But be aware of reproductions, which are quiet common. You can identify them at the more modern making (backside).

Comment posted on Thursday 22nd of May 2014 by Tony Dunn
Yes DPSG memberships. Shown is the 2nd issue of 4 types. First issue was red outline on very dark green and lozenge shaped. Then your square version which feels very silky. then exactly same design with a red lozenge shaped border. These two designs came in a set of silver and a set of gold FdLs.I have seen green, blue and light brown backgrounds. I think one colour FdL is for section leaders and another for their sections but not sure which way round. Then a new design of fdl 34mm ribbon badges, issued in 1971 yellow (cub), Green (scouts), blue (sea scouts) and red (Rovers?). The new design always reminds me of a cowboy gun slinger about to draw his guns - if you have one you will see what I mean! Lorna do you have dates for all 4 issues?

Comment posted on Thursday 22nd of May 2014 by tTony Dunn

Comment posted on Friday 2nd of May 2014 by Fred Eardley
All the badges belong to one person (not me) so I suppose this could have come with 812. Does that mean it identifies this badge to one of the Scandinavian countries? Any further info would be useful.

Looks like the Danish KFUK symbol.They are still known as 'The Green Girl Guides' because of their uniform colour. The Swedish and Norwegian KFUK both wore blue.

Lochearnhead Scout Station is a disused railway station at Lochearnhead which as the name suggests is at the head of Lochearn. There were two railway lines at Lochearnhead and the station is on the lower line which went along the north side of Lochearn. The upper line goes over Glen Ogil to Oban and Fort William and was being closed by Dr Beaching but a landslide closed it a few months earlier. The station was taken over by Hertfordshire Senior Scouts in 1962 as a base for their annual camp and is still run by Hertfordshire In the 1980s I ran many father and son cub pack holidays there for the 162nd Liberton Edinburgh Group. The engine shows the Hertfordshire stag on the front. The badge is pre 1968.

First Scout badge was green bound and circular in the 1980s. 2nd badge is square and black bound and then a slightly bigger one was issued, both c1990s. All three show people getting off a boat named Pitcairn onto a jetty with conifirs (as shown on the tourist badge) on the hills behind. The named boat is a reference to that the original settlers were descendants from Pitcairn island, famous as the home of the mutineers of the Bounty.

Is this one a camp site or a group badge? If a camp site, which one?
Bromham is in Bedfordshire I believe.

Comment posted on Wednesday 5th of February 2014 by Peter
Bromham is a Scout campsite in Bedfordshire

Comment posted on Wednesday 5th of February 2014 by Alan
But there is a Scout Group based at the campsite, so they might use the badge:

You are right the camp site is west of Bedford (In the same district as me)and a Group do meet there but Im sure they do not wear this badge and never have.

Last few times I have been there this badge has not been on sale so I assume no longer produced. There is also a ribbon version of this from many years ago.

This badge depicts the outline of Queensland, Australia, which is known as the Sunshine State. It looks to me as if it a type of fun badge as I do not believe it to be a district issue.

Comment posted on Thursday 11th of August 2016 by Tony Peck
This badge is listed in "Australian Scout Badges" book by Jeff "Rusty" Irons, Tasmania, Australia issued in 1964. [This book pre-dates further great works by Rex Rippon, Victoria & David Haskard, NSW.] It shows this badge was issued 1960, which means it became available as a SWAP badge at the 6th Australian Jamboree 1960/61. There were others in this swap 'series' yet to be confirmed.

This just-discovered badge appears to be a larger version of badge 652 (on archive page). It measures 63mm x 47mm, and is attached to a 45mm-wide 540mm long joined-up knitted band, fairly obviously to go round a hat, before it lost its elasticity. The piping appears to be from twisted gold-coloured wire.
Is this an Asst. Sea Scoutmaster hat badge or something else?

A badge of very similar design to this is currently worn as a point of scarf badge by 1st Bulawayo (Pioneer) Troop, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Scouting started in that country in 1909, with the first troop being registered in January 1910 and the badge depicted here being of what looks like felt gives me cause to believe it dates from an early period of Scouting, and possibly even the original 1st Bulawayo.

The miners pick has long been associated with Rhodesia from the days it was administered by the British South Africa Company, and appeared in the armorial bearings of of the country when Southern Rhodesia was created in 1923, and I am hazarding a guess this old felt badge might date from sometime onwards from there.

A picture of the current badge may be seen by logging onto Matabeleland Boy Scouts, and going to the sub section for badges.

A previous owner wrote on the back that it is from Iran but I have no idea what the badge is for... membership/promise...rank....district??

Comment posted on Monday 20th of January 2014 by Tony Dunn
It is none of the above. This is definately an Iranian National Jamboree - reputedly the 2nd held in 1961.

However the Arabic date at the bottom (first 4 figures on the left) reads 1339. The Arab calander runs about 579 yrs behind ours and is 11 days shorter so this works out as 1918 so is obviously a start of a commemorative date and not the date of the event.

Comment posted on Thursday 11th of August 2016 by Tony Peck
This is the 3rd Iran National Jamboree, held 1960, at Manzarieh campsite, Tehran. Attended by 10,000 Scouts.
Irans' first two Jamborees earlier were 1954 and 1956 respectively, same campsite, for which badges were also issued.

The golden needle on the right side is an old needle of "Deutsche Pfadfinderschaft Sankt Georg" (DPSG = German Saint George Scouting) showing its old Fleur de Lis. This golden needle was in use from 1950-1965 for Rover Scouts (Leaders) and Cub Scout Leaders (Akela). A silver needle was worn by junior scouts and scouts at that time. From 1949-1950 there was only the silver needle in use to be worn by Scouts and Rover Scouts.

The one on the left is a lapel buttonhole badge for Sixers.
The one on the right was the general badge worn on the lapel by all scouts during the 70s. It was replaced by the one in the middle, probably in the late 80s.
We sold them all in the Coventry Scout Shop.

Comment posted on Thursday 2nd of October 2014 by Philippe
This possible Commissioner's plume is probably very current as it is NOT held by a horizontal pin but appears to have a vertical tab to fit behind the Stetson's band. It reminds me of the "placing mechanism" on the 2007 WJ commemorative plumes.

Purple for Commisioners(royalty)

Comment posted on Tuesday 4th of February 2014 by Tony Dunn
The colour of the plumes follow a theme green SM , red Assistant, green/white/green GSM, maroon SM(Seniors), purple commissioners. There are others for Treasurer, Secretary and Auxilary, Gilwell staff - even Chief Scouts/Commissioners of Commonwealth countries.). The metal part denotes the section. So this red one is an Asst Rover Scout Leader know as a Rover Mate. Early ones have the motto 'Be Prepared' instead of 'Boy Scouts'. Later ones come in sterling silver and chromed base metal, but the coloured plus can be bristle (early) or nylon (later). There are other countries who still use them, notably Hong Kong

The middle badge, top line, is a group badge for 1st Newport, Isle of Wight, which has a posher name which Fred Eardley will no doubt furnish you with.

The middle badge, bottom line, is the group badge for 1st Stubbington (Fareham West District) in Hampshire and depicts among other things the Search and Rescue helicopter from Lee on the Solent which was the former HMS Daedalus naval air and hovercraft base.

It is from Sao Paulo District in Brazil. UEB-SP stands for Uniao Dos Escoteiros Do Brazil - Sao Paulo (Union Of Brazilian Scouts - Sao Paulo). Unfortunately I do not know what the badeg was issued for.

Auregny is the old name for Alderny in the Channel Isles. The origin of its name lies in the Auregnais word for Alderney. It is also found spelt Aurigny as in Aurigny Air services, the regional airline for the Channel Isles which flies to Alderney.

So it may be a Scout Group badge or school blazer badge for Alderney in the Chennel Isles.

I believe this to be an early pattern of the badge which I believe is worn by the 9th Wakefield (South Ossett) Group, Wakefield District, Central Yorkshire County.
The 9th Wakefield style themselves as the IXth Wakefield which appears to link it to the badge. I am trying to find out more about this, and will come back to it if I do get it confirmed.

WOW - Nice find. This is part of the Canadian troops that were stationed in Europe after the war. This is one of two troop badges from the troops in France and is very very very difficult to find. The name tape is also from the same groups and also a very hard badge. Good work and a great find.

A brown backing would indicate mid 1930s to about 1950. This is consistent with the other badges.

I believe you will find the bottom right badge is 1st Whitchurch in Hampshire although it appears to be upside down. There have been two issues with the second being darker red. Whitchurch is part of Andover District and is also referred to as the 7th Andover. The village is famous for its silk mill.

I think this comes from British Scouts Western Europe, Germany District. It was awarded or given out to leaders who completed their Wood Badge Courses.

Comment posted on Thursday 3rd of October 2013 by Tony Dunn
Partly right. The current DC of Germany BSO tells me Ed Gough, his predecessor set up a DC\'s challenge and this was the badge that Scouts got if they completed it. This was in BSWE days and the badge dates from around 2005. The Wood beads are on it as a Scouty symbol, nothing more than that.
