Boy/Varsity Scout Uniform Left front Left front (Scout/Venturer)

Left Front Insignia

This is the insignia which goes on the LEFT SIDE of the front of Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts and Venturers' shirts. Separate pages address Cub Scout and adult volunteer/professional insignia which is worn on the LEFT FRONT of the uniform shirt.

You may also download a template which is "actual size" and you can place on the shoulder and "match up" the location of the insignia. The template is done using Adobe's(tm) Acrobat Reader program. Again, there is a separate page which has a template for Cub Scouting-specific insignia.

Basic rule of Scouting uniform is NEATNESS. Things do NOT have to be "exact" and nobody should expect every uniform to match up exactly to the templates provided here nor to a ruler or metric. The most important part is that the insignia is CLOSE TO or NEAR where it SHOULD be, and that the insignia reflects the CURRENT STATUS of the individual wearing the uniform.

There are TWO templates on this page; one addresses wearing year pins from various programs and the other has only one program year pin.
