As the parent of a recently graduated Cub Scout who received his Arrow of
Light on the same eve. that he crossed over into Boy Scouts, let me put in my
own two cents worth. My son received a Boy Scout Handbook as a graduation
gift from his old Pack. I have sewn on his A.O.L. Badge as it is illustrated
in this book. It is the reference that the vast majority of Scouts and
parents will have available to them - how many parents are going to go
searching out an insignia guide, when they have a book at home, which shows
where the badge belongs??
All of the discussions of rank placement and size are kind of academic,
because, lets remember that these new Scouts that have earned their Arrow of
Light Badge DO NOT HAVE RANK BADGES WHEN THEY SEW THEIR A.O. L. onto their
Just a thought ; )
As for me, it was in my son's handbook, it is now on his uniform, and I
certainly plan to leave it exactly where it is !!
