    Not to change the subject, but where does it say that the Jambo patch above the right pocket must be either "National" or "World" Jamboree?

      According to this document, only CURRENT national scout jamboree insignia.

        Also according to The Guide to Awards and Insignia, page 10
        Jamboree Insignia
        Jamboree emblems for Boy Scouts or Venturers are worn only by registered jamboree participants and staff and are centered above the Boy Scouts of America strip or, for Venturers, above the right shirt pocket above the Venturing strip. No more than two jamboree patches may be worn on the shirt—one current national jamboree patch above the right pocket and one current world jamboree patch on the right pocket. If the wearer has an interpreter strip above the pocket, merely move the jamboree emblem upward sufficiently to accommodate it.

        And here is a link to all sections of the document.

        EDITED: When I worked for National Supply, when there were conflicts in information, the Insignia Guide as it was known at the time, was the document that trumped everything else.

          You can tell that this inspection sheet is newer because it shows a Summit Jambo patch while the one above shows the 2010 Centennial Jambo. This one does not specify "National," it simply says Jamboree.

            I would say that it can be placed above the right pocket. The right pocket patch placement is the most neglected rule of the uniform, for I have seen many scouts wearing "illegal" patches there, the most common ones are either NYLT or NAYLE.
            When you jump off a bridge because everyone else is jumping off a bridge, I'll accept the "everybody's doing it" argument.

              So, as long as nobody else is jumping at the same time, go right ahead!

              I stand against the NYLT/NAYLE patches going above the pocket. But NOAC is a National event just like Jambo.
