scout neckerchiefs in Uniforms Posted January 18, 2009 The dimensions of the full-square neckerchiefs varied. The older ones from the 1920's were smaller and not exactly square. In 1940's dimensions changed to 32x32 and a coarser fabric was used in their manufacture. By 1950 they were pretty much gone in favor of the triangular scarves. I have tons of the old full-squares - of all colors. I have tried to preserve them from being lost. If anyone wants one - or a bunch - they are free for the asking. Just send me a message.
