That's true- I forgot to mention that our Scout Shop sells woggles too
in Canada. They have different woggles for the different sections,
yellow for Cubs, green for Scouts, baby blue for Venturers, red for
Rovers. (Same as the background epaulet colors, and the belts.)
They're in some kind of fabric, and can be buttoned in back.
In the catalog, they're called neckerchief slides, not woggles.
I didn't mention the Beavers. They didn't change uniforms when the
other sections did, and they still wear the old-style woggles, which
are brown leather and have a little yellow beaver on them. (The
other woggles used to have wolf heads, or fleur-de-lys, etc., on them.)
They also button in back. BTW, beavers usually wear their neckerchieves
"sideways" around here- they don't go down, but instead they cross over.
I don't know why.
And Patrol Leaders and APL's used to have special woggles available too,
