The scout neckerchief is an important part of the uniform and must be worn properly. The following information is a guideline to wearing the neckerchief.
¥ Fold the long edge over several flat folds to about 6 inches from the tip of the neckerchief. A tight fold prevents gathering ÊÊÊaround the neck and is neater than rolling.
¥ Place the neckerchief around the neck of a shirt, either with the collar turned under, or with the neckerchief worn under the collar.
¥ Draw neckerchief slide over ends and adjust to fit snugly.
¥ The portion of the neckerchief which shows below the back of the neck should measure no more than 6 inches.
The following neckerchiefs are approved for wear in Cub Scouting:
FOR BOYS :
¥ Gold Wolf neckerchief
¥ Light blue Bear neckerchief
¥ Plaid Webelos Scout neckerchief
FOR ADULTS :
¥ Cub Scout leader neckerchief (dark blue with gold trim)
¥ Webelos Den Leader neckerchief (plaid, similar to boys')

Insignia for Red Jackets
The proper universal emblem for the appropriate Scouting branch is worn on the left pocket. The Philmont bull emblem is designed for the red wool jac-shirt (black for men, white for women) and is worn on the left shoulder above the pocket. Boy Scouts may wear their leadership corps patch centered on the right pocket. On all jacket, the Philmont or other high-adventure base emblems may be worn centered on the right pocket or in the same relative position if there is no pocket.
Members of the National Eagle Scout Association or Order of the Arrow may wear their six-inch emblem on the back of the jacket, as may those who have participated in international activities such as the World Jamboree. Only one such emblem may be worn. No other badges or insignia are approved for the red jackets.
The Red Vest
The red patch vest No. 537 (boys) or No. 539 (leaders) may be worn with the official uniform on all but formal occasions. These exceptions would be Blue and Gold Banquets, uniform inspections, etc.
This vest was designed for your extra patches such as Day Camp, Scouting Show, Pow Wow, Pinewood Derby, etc. since only one temporary patch can be worn on the uniform at a time.
This vest is available though the Scouting distributors. Badges of Rank do not belong on the red vest.
Official shorts and Cub Scout T-Shirts are recommended for all outside summer activities. This gives the boys a feeling of being in uniform without wearing the uniform with all the badges, which would be restrictive.
