The policy on partials seems to be local. Your camp, troop, advancement
committee, or other body can determine the expiration. Our camp accepts
partials up to a year. An individual Merit Badge Counsellor can accept
whatever he wants (unless there are strict guidelines by the
council/district advancement committee).
