Does anyone know whether this badge is a Scout Group badge? I have tried Googling 3rd Wyke Group but have not come up with anything, apart from finding there is a Wyke in Humberside and in Bradford. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Two different issues of the same badge. Probably from a Group but which one?
Comment posted on Thursday 11th of February 2021 by Peter
The Papal Tiara is used by many Roman Catholic Scout Groups and each group has it's own badge made. This means that there are many different versions of the same "group" badge and it is almost impossible to link each badge to an individual group.
Comment posted on Thursday 11th of February 2021 by Fred Eardley
I would agree with Peter on this one. I believe the left hand one is the older version, and the right hand one, of which I received an example from the 1st Rainham (La Salette) Group, but I also have had this attributed to the 4th Macclesfield and 3rd Rayleigh. The left hand one has been attributed to the 136th B'ham, 25th Oxford, 33rd Cardiff, and 9th Rugby.

I agree with Peter. Many RC Groups called St Peters used the Papal Arms which is the correct name, as its Group badge. Of course many could be non scout, just a RC connection as well, its hard to tell.

Definately not British. I have a vague recollection that it was considered to be 1st Lahr Group scarf badge, Canadian Scouts in Germany. They had it made in UK.

A Baden-Powell commemorative item. The wording is "Silver leaf From South Africa Remember Baden-Powell Boer v. Briton". It appears to be an actual leaf but maybe a finely crafted silk-like material. It is 136mm wide by 38mm high. What exactly is it and who issued it and when?
Comment posted on Monday 15th of February 2021 by Tony Peck
I used to have a small Boer War collection. This is a Tourist item, specifically sold to Soldiers of British Empires' various countries when on Leave. These were coloured painted gum or other broad tree leaves, different wordings inscripted, & usually sent back home in a folded greetings card, bearing a local postcard and/or, with various areas for a short message. I never saw one with Baden-Powell on them, so this detached item appears bit scarcer, given once Mafeking relieved over they reverted to normal Cape Town or bigger city items. You can still pick these folders with leaf inside nowadays here in Australia for $20 if you have a lucky find.

A Sea Scout Hat Tally Band. Scan has not worked out very well. The actual text on the band is "Sea Scouts R.N.A.P." What was this for and who issued it? Thanks.
Comment posted on Tuesday 2nd of February 2021 by Mike
Is it possible that the 'P'is or was an 'R' in which case it probably stands for Royal Navy Admiralty Recognised?
Comment posted on Thursday 4th of February 2021 by Steve
A possibility. I have examined the tape with a magnifying glass both front and back and there does not appear to be any stitches, remnants of stitches or hole marks. This of course is not conclusive but if it is a P it does create a conundrum.

Can't confirm its' use but the rose normally stands on 2 sepals whereas this one stand on only one!
Comment posted on Monday 1st of February 2021 by Steve
It is a diamond-shaped felt badge sewn to point of neckerchief. Perhaps it was sewn on upside down?

Southend Hospital Scout Group
Comment posted on Sunday 31st of January 2021 by Fred Eardley
As Alan says, it is the Southend Hospital Neptune Scout Group. The children's ward at the hospital is named Neptune Ward, hence the name on the badge, and it draws its members from the young patients in the ward, enabling them to take part in Scouting activities whilst patients there.

66th Dublin (Clondalkin) Group Badge
Comment posted on Friday 12th of February 2021 by Brendan
Naomh Gillin Cluain Dolcain. Cluain Dolcain is the Irish for Clondalkin which translates into Dolcan's meadow. Naomh Gillin is Saint Kilian, also spelled Killian or alternatively Irish: Cillian. The group which was founded in 1940 is now known as Saint Killian’s. Clondalkin is a town about 10Km west of Dublin. It’s more likely to be the 78th Dublin, the 66th Dublin were I think Clontarf.
