I finally went out and purchased an official Insignia Guide (1993 printed
addition!) After all those knot questions the only way to get the gospel
truth was just to read it for myself.
Page 6 of the official Insignia Guide says," Consider displaying temporary
insignia in ways other than on the official uniform. Here are some
1. Wear it on a BSA red patch vest, campfire robe or blanket, or special
2. Dispay it on a wall plaque, trophy hide, or mounted in a frame.
3. Or, make a special neckerchief slide, sectional totem pole, or
flagpole insignia for display."
Most of our cubs use the red patch vest for all the extra patches. We've been
to air shows, state parks, and military museums. The
boys get extra patches from these places and they usually get glued
or sewed onto the vest. Popcorn patches are a great example. They
are not official patches but for every red patch vest I've ever seen there
is usually at least one popcorn patch to be found on the vest.
