  1. I agree with you about not needing a "uniform czar", but it would be nice to at least have someone in HQ who could answer a simple email about uniform matters, even if the answer is "See the Uniform Guide p. xxx". I don't think that is too much to ask, particularly when it might be an "off the wall" question like mine. In 1960 I wore the "legacy uniform" that you probably wore as well (before we let some fashion designer ruin the design of the uniform). The Jubilee Camporee patch was a National patch - not a local Council patch. There must have been a regulation back then about where to put it on the uniform. All I would like is for someone at HQ look at the regulations in effect back in 1960 and see what it said. It seems reasonable to me that it could still be worn on the new uniform in the same place. I'm sure that HQ would have all the uniform regulations for all the years. Another question: If the patch was authorized to be worn on the right pocket, what happened when the "new" uniform and the "new" regulations went into effect? Would a Scouter not be allowed to wear it on the "new" uniform? Why would that be? I think it is quite a distinction to be able to say "I participated in the National Jubilee Camporee" along with thousands of Scouts. Another question: What patch, if any, was authorized for the 100th Jubilee in 2010? Was there a patch? If so, what is it and where is it worn? Does anyone know?
  2. Many thanks for the reply. It bothers me that there is no one designated at the National Council who can rule on these matters. A uniform is, by definition, "uniform". And if there is such a person (or committee), then making contact should not be a secret. And it shouldn't be up to unofficial "bloggers" to have to decide for the whole movement. Seems relatively easy: designate an Executive who has the authority to rule on such matters.
  3. My first campout as a Scout was a weekend "Jubilee Camporee" in 1960. All the Scouts in my Troop were awarded the "50th Jubilee Camporee" patch. We were told to wear it above the pocket on the wearer's right side and I saw many Scouts wear it in that location years ago. However, the BSA Guide to Awards and Insignia only mentions wearing a National Jamboree patch in that location. Does anyone know who I can ask to see if I can wear it in that location? I emailed Bryan on the "Bryan on Scouting" blog but did not get a response. Thanks a lot.
