Bdp: German Ranks and badges
Mon, 7 Nov 1994 13:31:36 -0700
Serveral years ago I was serving in the U.S. military in Germany. We
had a BSA unit over there, and did an activity with some German Scouts. One of
our scouts was trying to trade with the German scouts. He tried to trade his
neckercheif but none of the German scouts would trade. We were later told that
the German scouts used various colors of neckercheifs to identify there rank.
I am not sure which of the German scouting organizations we were having
our activity with, but am now curious to learn more about this incident. so if
there are some German Scouters I would like your help.
What are the titles of the ranks in your organization?
How do the scouts show their rank?
If the neckercheifs are used, What colors corespond to which ranks?
Compared to BSA uniforms which tend to get covered with badges, the
German Scouts had very few badges on their uniforms. I am also curious how
badges are used in the various German Scouting organizations?
