Explorer Leaders' awards Oddities
Sat Apr 04 10:16:15 1998
I would appreciate it if anyone could shed any light on the following:
1. Why is it that the Explorer Leader's Key cannot be worn on the uniform?
The design of the medal looks like it may have at one time been suspended from
a ribbon. The Skipper's Key medal is a Scouter's Key with a Sea Exploring
(Scouting) miniature device. Why not the same for other branches of the
service, with substitution of the Exploring miniature device?
2. Why is it that there are no certificates available for the Explorer
Leader's Key (or for any Explorer leader award, apparently)? I do have a
certificate from the eighties which has a rendering of the Explorer Leader's
Key in addition to ather medals; but this is apparently no longer available.
Thank you for your help!
