From personal experience, I would recommend putting the veteran unit bar
(if different between the pack and the troop), the unit number, and the
position patch on a single strip of velcro about an inch and a half wide.
Use the "hook" side for the patches and put the "loop" side on the sleeve.
It made it a lot easier to switch "hats" between the pack, the troop, and
the district by swapping them all at once. Also, easier to get them lined
up. And because it took the longest time to fit Webelos Leader Training
into my schedule, I had to add that one to my ASM and commissioner strips
and leave it off the WL strip. Then, for Woodbadge, all I needed was the
numeral 1. The Bobwhite became a permanent fixture on all my shirts.
