Not wanting to start an argument, because I certainly respect
the knowledge that Mike brings to this group, but I must refer
to the following resources:
>The Wood Badge may be worn with the official dress blazer of the BSA but
>not with a civilian dress blazer. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The Insignia Guide (33064 dated 1995) states on page 27:
"Wood Badge slide or woggle, No. 02173, trained Scouter,with Wood Badge
neckerchief; necklace with two beads ....<snip>...<unsnip> Wood Badge
beads are not worn on civilian clothes, dress uniform blazer, or with
>This is the leather neckerchief slide which is presented as part of the Wood
>Badge presentation. It is recommended that this neckerchief slide be used
>whenever wearing the Wood Badge, whether you wear the Wood Badge neckerchief
>or a unit neckerchief.
The Wood Badge Participants Notebook page 16, under the heading of:
Proper Display of Regalia
Item # 3b states:
The Wood Badge neckerchief is worn only with the woggle as a neckerchief
slide. The woggle is never worn with any other neckerchief.
Just my 02 cents from the material that BSA has furnished me.
