22nd Feb, 2023Jordi BernetHello everyone,I am a member of the IBC, discontinuously, I think since 1985. I am interested in badges from Spain, Kandersteg, only scout progression, BSA position, World Jamboree participant badge and finally WSGCM badges (World Scout and Guide Collectors Meeting). Can you help me?.Thank you.
5th Sep, 2022Jerry da Silva MatzI was a former member #1978 many, many years. +45 years collecting, being honest and trustworthy ever. Honored with Medal of Merit and a few international awards from Russian Scouts in Exile, White Ruthenian, Estonian among others in the past. My field of scout badge collecting is very specialized so I limit the search to Air Scouting, Scouts in Exile (mainly pre-1989, DP camps, etnic troops abroad), BSA badges of office, Japan and a very few more. Therefore it is normal that I can also offer more of this type of insignia or that I can find the right contacts looking for them. I am not rich, nor am I interested in producing falsehoods. I met Alexey Zacharin and Margarita Suwalow (both Russian ORUR in NY) were good friends of mine, and still keep regular contact with Nick Gileff (Russian NORS) today. I helped Piet Kroonenberg (WOSM historian) to compile information and pictures for his books as well.

18th Jun, 2021Andrea PadoinDear Scout brothers and sisters,the World Meeting of Scout and Guide Collectors in Italy awaits you!The 39th World Meeting, the first since the pandemic, will be held on the weekend of 10-12 September, not far from venice, Northern Italy.The event will be held in a very large, outdoor exhibition center, where we can guarantee - if necessary - distance and safety.Swap tables will be distant, and dinner and other activities will be outdoors, enjoying the Italian late summer weather ... in a spectacular and unique setting.By now we are getting vaccinated, in a few weeks we will all have the green pass and traveling to Europe will not be a problem.For organizational reasons, we would like to know if anyone is considering attending the meeting. It will be a great moment... to be able to greet each other in person after two years ... toast with a prosecco and resume our swaps.We look forward to your reservations!The form can be downloaded from the website of the event: look for 39wsgcm "dot" org.Thank you, see you soon!
26th Mar, 2021Claire BennettInformation request:In the catalogue that was released for the 2011 World Scout Jamboree before the camp so that people could make pre-orders, there was a badge that was in the shape of a Swedish dala horse, coloured in stripes of the bright colours that a lot of the merch had. I foolishly thought I wouldn't want enough in the shop to reach the minimum spend (hahahahaha!), so didn't do a pre order. I really loved that badge though, and went into the shop pretty much every day trying to get one, but never saw it on sale nor did my friend who I'd asked to keep an eye out. Did the badge actually exist in the end? If you know either way, please drop me a line!
19th Feb, 2021Michelle Hughes I was previously a member for many years. So, my camp blanket recently got destroyed (long story, very emotional). I grew up in Worcestershire/Midlands Guiding in the 1970, 80s, 90s and all my badges from that time have been ruined. Very happy to swap or buy if you have any from that time. Please get in touch!! Thanks.

I am an Italian collector (among other things, I am looking for the patches of the Norwegian National Jamborees - NSF - 1948, 1952, 1960, 1964). Thanks for the hospitality on this interesting site.

20th Sep, 2018C. Mark Grant member no. 05/25Hi there, greetings from the Highlands of Scotland (Inverness) ! I collect Eurojam 2005 & WSJ 2007 at Chelmsford where I was an IST. I was wondering if anyone had a definitive list of the UK & International Contingents that took part at Chelmsford?
I also have a lot of swaps from both camps and would like to get in touch with like minded collectors. I have a lot of badges from many other WSJs ready to swap but I'm not collecting other WSJs, only 2007!! Feel free to get in touch but I will be out of the country doing 'Scouty' things in the next few weeks for near a fortnight without computer access so please be patient if you don't hear back immediately. Cheers, YiS, Mark[Smiley] [Smiley]
17th Aug, 2018Craig StebbinsI'm a third generation Eagle Scout and live in Seattle Washington. I attend the 1975 World Jamboree in Norway. I'm currently as assistant Cubmaster in a unit founded 80 years ago.

I'm looking for a 1970's era UK Queens Scout Badge and a complimentary UK Chief Scouts Badge from the same period. Used, but good condition is OK. A fellow leader in Pack earned these, but has since lost them over the years.

27th Oct, 2017Richard GahanUsed to be a member 20/30 years ago when as a Scout then young leader I collected County and District Badges.

Whilst clearing my mothers house 18 months ago, I found my old collection of UK County and District badges, swaps and small collection of overseas badges. Also found an early copy of the Annual Catelogue listing all UK badges - for some reason, I kept the list and still have it.

I really must open the box of badges - never stored in any logical order other than maybe elastic band by county.

May even have some old swaps.

Still involved with Scouting having completed 25+ years as (Assistant) Scout Leader with the same group as I was in Scouts.

Great to see the club is still going strong and looking through the virtual collection - many of which I will probably have myself
23rd Aug, 2017Dean JusticeHiI have paid membership to join I.B.C and my payment by paypal has not been processed yet.

21st Jul, 2017ColinCan anyone help please? [Smiley]

Two questions...

1. Does anyone have a Rover ribbon project badge (genuine/excellent repro) for sale please? I have put together a Rover uniform for vintage weekend and when I ironed it the Project badge disintegrated [Smiley] (fortunately a repro)...but I am now desperate to complete the uniform.

2. I've not been to Gilwell reunion for years - do the 'Badgers' still have a display and stalls selling badges and memorabilia?

Thanks in anticipation [Smiley]

10th Mar, 2017LenI am seeking a sixties era scouters badge, bristle not important, would have 'boy scouts' on the scroll. Hopefully style with two lugs to rear.

Happy to pay reasonable costs to Australia.

23rd Nov, 2014Gerry WI am a little disturbed to see adverts appearing on eBay for British/UK Scout proficiency Badges that are stretching the truth and quoting the IBC as their source of provenance. One example - 1909 British/UK Scouts ENTERTAINER Proficiency Badge. In 1909 Baden Powell was only just formalizing the Scout movement and formalizing it on the ideas of 'backwoodmanship' gleaned from his time in South Africa. I am sure that ENTERTAINER was a qualification to be farthest from his ideals. Comments direct to my Email would be appreciated.

I just started a new Patch Exchang group. Open to all WAGGGS members. I Am looking for new members to make this group posible. Hope you can find this site. My site name is GSGG Trading and it is a google site.


Greetings all

I am trying to drum up some business for our Southend badge meet in the hope that we can encourage a few more badgers to pop along. Over the past 2-3 years we have had less and less and it would be a shame if it had to be removed from the calendar as it is the only one in this area.
I am trying to encourage some young people from our district to come along so it would be a shame if not many turned up. It would be great to see a few new faces as well as the regulars. Hope to see some of you there.
If anyone would like to do a postal swap then please email me

I have a two 1977 Queen's Silver Jubilee Badge that seem to be different to the normal ones.

2. The G G in the Guides badge on the bottom right has the G's backwards

Are either of these badges rare?

2nd Jul, 2007Greg CohenHello,
I am a collector of UK metal Scout and Guide items (badges, plumes, medals, flag pole emblems, belts, etc.) and I would like to trade with other Club Members.
However, for the moment, the IBC does not facilitate this contact amongst it's membership.
Therefore, if you are interested in Scouting memorabilia (including metal and cloth badges) please drop me an e-mail and I will start the ball rolling by sending out a list of items for sale or swap. I will address the e-mail to all those who respond and then any of you can make contact with your items for sale/swap or items wanted.

31st Oct, 2006Nick Hi,
I am ayoung scout from Victoria, Australia. I'm trying to get my parents to let me join. I have a really really really small collection of around 20-30 badges. Any spare badges that you have could you please donate to me. It would really help me and my friend achieve our goal. I am going to try to fill up a blanket with badges, get the sown on and take them to camps. Any donations would mean the world to me.

Yours in Scouting

24th Feb, 2006Ian GreigI am starting my collection up again and am interested in two main items at present.
First the "plume" badges that scouters used to wear on the side of their hats (sometimes called "brush badges").
I do not know if many of them are around. Has anyone got any idea of what the Australian versions went for in the last auction? Any info on these badges would be appreciated.
Second I am interested in the Thailand Scout enameled badges. I have all of the current ones but would like any info about older ones if possible.
Thanks to all.

28th Oct, 2004John RobertsI have been a member of the IBC for about 7 years. It is a great club and the magazine is also excellent. I have noticed in the past year or so the drop in the number of 'badgers' putting adverts in the magazine to do general swopping. So let's get the club back to its roots -- good swopping! Happy collecting.
28th Oct, 2004John Roberts[Smiley] Here is another message from John. Forgot to [Smiley] that I also collect and swop scout and guide postcards (mostly modern), but also collect the older ones.
There is a lot of interest in the cards as some show badges as well. [Smiley] Come on let's make it a great club again!
12th Oct, 2004Susan BakerI like badgers.Preferbly the Wisconsin Badgers.Although I don't have a big collection of badger items.I just think the badger is a neat wild animal and should be protected it's not like other animals that you would want hunted like deer and other things people eat for food.
1st Oct, 2004Xavier Adell PorrasCongratulattions for this web is very nice!

14th Jul, 2004John RobertsI had forgotten about this brilliant [Smiley] part of the IBC web page. Let's have more [Smiley] of the members leaving notes and comments on here. The magazine is great [Smiley] but we need more people to do swopping [Smiley] by post. It is a great way to turn over your swops and meet [Smiley] new collectors. So [Smiley] spread the news about our great club in scouting and guiding. Yours John Roberts
