70s version of Senior Patrol Leader emblem

Whether your unit has the older full-color version (example above) or the current tan-backgrounded version (example below), EITHER version of the unit leadership position emblems are valid for wear. The same goes for those long-time Scouters who like me, are hanging onto their "Cornerstoned" badges of office for Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster or other positions. They are still also valid to wear IF you are trained in the position in which the badge of office supports. Be ready to show those "patch police officers" your Cornerstone training card!! *smiling*

Boy/Varsity Scout Uniform Left Side Insignia Template

Left Side (Shoulder) Insignia

This is the insignia which goes on the LEFT SHOULDER of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and adult volunteers and/or professionals.

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.

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.
