Any of the older style uniforms may be worn. They have to worn in the entirety
of the period of there use though. You can't mix and match from different
uniforming periods, i.e. red beret with the old od green uniforms etc. For
example, at a commissioner's meeting a fellow commissioner came in full od green

front pockets, and the utility cap. Good lord that's going back isn't it ! Was
only one thing wrong with the period uniform, it had a world crest on the shirt.
Now you can imagine how hard it would be to explain to him that world crest
hadn't been issued back then.he was so proud of the uniform. I decided not to
tell him. He hadn't been a scout as a youth back then, so I figured why hurt his
