Yes - there are specific regulations on the two awards you list - the
Marksmanship is specifically noted, the other just a general statement.
Gentlemen-- I suggest that you seek a 1990 copy (the latest edition, as
the 1991 copy should be out within the next few months) of INSIGINIA GUIDE
(the old title was Insignia Control Guide), page 5 (and all of the first
pages clearly states the rules and regs on patches of all kinds. I will
bring my copy to work tomorrow and quote for you.
However - NO local council has the right to change and/or alter the
national insignia regulations - therefore, if you have a unit in your
council wearing illegal and absolutely disallowed military patches - it
needs to be addressed.
(Of course, that is how I have met alot of people, volunterr and
professional, and made some rebellious noise! But - on the other hand,
that's how I keep pace with all the things that happen in BSA Scouting - or
at least try.)
