Uniform for members going overseas
The official Scout uniform for all individual and national contingent parties of Youth and Leaders going overseas is the National Scouts Australia uniform policy (refer APandR14). Travel to and from an overseas event will be in uniform or any appropriate and approved contingent attire.
All members of Scouting must remember that they are ambassadors for Scouting in Australia as the premier and largest youth movement and as such must wear their attire correctly and present themselves at all times in an appropriate manner. They must be appropriately proud to show that they are a part of world Scouting representing Scouts Australia.
Special Events Badges: The Chief Commissioner of Australia may approve the design and wearing of a special event badge produced specially for an Australian Contingent or approves the wearing of a badge produced by an Association overseas for all members attending the event. The National Secretary in conjunction with the Party Leader can arrange the production of such.
State and Local Name Tapes: Members may continue to wear State and local name tapes on the right sleeve when overseas. State or local badges worn on the front may have to be removed to provide space for special event badges or name tapes.
Accommodation is available at Scout Centres in a number of countries - refer to the International Travel Guide sent to your Unit, the Scouts Australia International website, or contact email@example.com for a list.
