You are of course correct that B-P wore his military medals and Orders
with Scout uniform. Here in the UK it is permitted to wear military
medals as well as certain other medals ( Queen's Police Medal, Queen's
Fire Service Medal ) and Orders (e.g. orders of chivalry) .
However, in " Advancement Guidelines " BSA specifically preclude the
wearing of military medals with uniform. My copy is the 1990 printing and
it appears under the heading " Badges of Other Organisations " on page 3.
If you were to come to the UK and join The Scout Association you <would>
be allowed to wear your awards from the US Government on your <British>
Scout uniform ...
