Ouch! Stop! It hurts! It tickles! Stop!
I must have been sleeping when I posted my list of knots with no other
I knew the OA award had a neck ribbon, and I have actually seen several!
(Wake up Jim!)
I also knew the Commissioner award had a bolo (I've got one!) but I guess my
mind was telling me "patches, medals, neck ribbons" for wear on the class A
(?) uniform -- funny how the brain works (or doesn't) sometimes ;-). Same
thing with SM award - jacket patch not worn on class A uniform, so I dumped
it from the brain housing group!
Mike Walton posted some pretty interesting stuff - I'm not real familiar with
Explorer awards. I knew about the James West knot, but it isn't in the
Insignia Guide, so I did not mention it. My bad. Mike, I am confused about
the Hornaday Award - you say it has a badge, not really a knot. But I've
seen a knot - talk to me big guy!
In my defense, let me say I was asleep, so I guess I did a pretty good job,
that is, e-mailing when asleep ;-)).
YIS Jim Sheckels I used to be a Bobwhite .... and a sleepy one too!
