Front Panels and Scarf – My Involvement
The front of the uniform is the most viewed area, and as a result, it presents my involvement in Scouting. This includes:
Australian Flag Badge
Worn above the pocket on the left hand side of the shirt.
World Scout Badge
Worn alongside the Australian Flag badge, above pocket on left hand side.
Messengers of Peace Ring Badge
Not displayed on this diagram, this badge is worn around the World Scout badge following the completion of a Messengers of Peace project.
Years of Service Badges
Worn below the World Scout badge and Australian Flag badge, these badges display the number of years a youth member has been part of each section.
- Only one badge/number should be worn per section
Unit Leader Badge
Worn on the top flap of the pocket.
These badges must be no larger than 75mm x 75mm in size, and must have been approved for wear by your Branch Chief Commissioner, or the National Chief Commissioner.
- Only one badge can be worn in this place at any given point in time.
Identification of the Patrol in which a member belongs is in the form of a fabric scarf slide.
- This is likely to also include Patrol leadership roles, following exhaustion of existing stock
