You might be interested to know that the "Bushman's Thong"
is still alive and part of the programme here in South Africa.
It is still considered the most difficult of all the outdoor
awards. It is no longer part of the achievement plan and is
now a "challenge award". A boy must be at least First Class
and have earned 5 required Proficency Badges and at least 10
additional ones. Some consider the award harder to earn than
the "Springbok" (top award).
