I am now at home with my resources, so I quote from page 7 of the 1996
printing of "Advancement Policies and Procedures Committee Guide"
If a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, or Explorer has met all of the
requirements for a rank, including age and service requirements, before his
death, he may receive an award posthumously. If he had met all of the
requirements, but a board of review had not been conducted, the review by
the council advancement committee can be conducted posthumously.
Application should be made to the council advancement committee within six
months after the boy's death. The application may be made only by the
chairman of the unit committee or the boy's unit leader."
