    • Oscar D was about 1980 or so
    • There are a few of us here who were scouts in the 60s or even 50s.   I joined up in '69 but the big uniform change was in '72 or '73.  Something about Oscar de la somethingorother.     I don't think I have a Guide to Insignia anymore, but I do have the handbooks.     Yes, Knots were worn by adults they were a different colored background than todays versions.    The eagle as I recall was a toss up.  A lot of adults still wore their Eagle badge, I saw a few from the 40's that were square rather than oval,  it was not correct by the strict rules but I never heard of any of the Patch Police having the nerve to call them on it.   A lot of our Scoutmasters had spent a few years  as grunts, shooting at Nazis in France and Germany, or fighting their way across the Pacific.    They didn't put up with much parade ground fluff.

    • Hi, I have my dad’s full 1960s collarless uniform, with the knee high socks and garters and such. It currently has the set up for a youth. I am now an adult leader and want to update it accurately to the 1960s insignia. Does anyone have a period guide or know what the patches looked like and where they went? I kind of have an idea but I can’t find anything on if there were eagle knots or if they wore the eagle patch and such. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
