Regarding the wearing of knots by Explorers aged 18-20, the Insignia
Guide (1995) lists each knot and designates who may wear it. When an
Explorer can wear the knot it includes the phrase "Explorer or Scouter
Only" in cases where the award can only be worn by an adult it uses
"Scouter Only" to designate this. This seems pretty clear. An Explorer
aged 18-20 is still an Explorer and not yet a "Scouter." Take a look at
the Explorer Leader Handbook which defines youth member for Exploring.
The answer is that an Explorer should not wear the knots for Arrow of
Light or Eagle.
