At our last district camporee, our Chapter Chief... wore the grey (or is it
silver?), district-level epulets on his uniform.
Jim, the silver epulats are for both District and Council folks. Here's the
story I'm told about their wearing.
The color of the epulats on your uniform, as well as the rank and other
shoulder insignia are supposed to represent your PRIMARY affiliation in
Scouting (both for adult or youth members).
This should be primary in both registration and practice. If you are a Scout
in a Troop first and a Scout representing the District or Council (we have
Scouts as members of the Council Committee, etc.), then you should wear RED.
If you are a member at large or in some other way primarily working at the
District or Council level, then you should wear SILVER.
We have a SM of a Troop here who wears RED at Troop meetings and other
Scouting events, but wears GOLD (National affiliation) when he works his job
at the Scout Shop store...
If a Scouter is a Pack representative (CM, DL, WL, etc...) and also on the
District Committee he should either wear BLUE, or have a seperate uniform
for the District stuff.
OK, that's my opinion...
