Marc, tell me about this patch. I know of only one AOL patch that
can be worn by the boy. The Cub can carry it over to Scout uniform
(bottom of left pocket). There is a knot for adults who earned AOL
as a boy, but which cannot be worn by boys.

Jim, I just checked with the expert on uniforms and patches (my wife)
and found out that this patch is offered by our district, not
National. It's called the Crossover patch. Sorry for the
confusion. Anyway, it's a pretty nice patch, so here's the de-
scription: It's about 4" wide, 2" high, and shaped to be worn on the
bottom of a pocket (the right one of course). On the left side of
the patch there's the Webelos "corn" symbol and on the right there's
the fleur-de-lis. An arched bridge connects the two symbols, drawn
like the Arrow of Light symbol, but with only five rays due to space
limitations. Over the bridge there's a curved yellow arrow with the
words "Scouting Trail" in blue in the arrow. Over all of this
there's the words "Daniel Webster Council" and under are "Massabesic
District". Maybe your district or council does something similar.
I'd draw it but my artistic talents and ASCII just wouldn't do
justice. Maybe I could describe it in heraldic terms. Then again
maybe some other time.
