These lapel badges are quite old. They have "Be Prepared" in their Flemish equivalent which would suggest Dutch. Are they Dutch or possibly Belgian, and what dates could they be from. Any other information would also be gratefully received. ie is the red on for an ASM etc.

The attached picture is of a lapel badge with a base metal "Flyott" Thanks Badge. It is attached to an early issue SM lapel badge.

Was this an official issued hybrid badge, if so when

[Badge Image]Badge posted by Scouts Canada National Museum
This group of proficiency badges was received recently at the Scouts Canada Museum in Ottawa. They are all black coloured with white lettering and symbols (ie no other colours). Only one ( the reef knot - Knotter) resembles anything in any of our old badge books. It could be suggested that they were specifically for Sea Scouts, but I cannot find them described in any of our badge sources. They came from the descendent of a former Scout in the Maritimes during the late 1930-1940s. Other badges (Tenderfoot, First Class, King's Scout) in the same package appear to be standard Canadian Scouting issue of that period. Can anyone identify the source of this design of badge ?

This version of the International Scout and Guide Fellowship was in use on UK uniforms in the late 1980. The buff or khaki version is exactly the same design.

Comment posted on Sunday 3rd of July 2022 by Steve
Have checked internet and it is the a Cub Scout rank badge from Japan. It is one of four being the highest - squirrel, rabbit, deer, bear. System and badges are very similar to those used in the USA with some name changes.
