All resposes to this question have demonstrated some excellent research,
The lads are not allowed to wear the BP star under their patrol patch
after they leave the patrol, soory. All newbees joining a BP stared
patrol are to wear the star. The patrol continues to wear the star so
long as they meet the requiires that earned them that staus in the 1st
place. Key is the minimum number of 8 patrol members. If the patrol
drops below a minimum of 8 patrol members for a persiod of 30 days, they
must remove the star & start all over-Sorrry gang-thats the law!!!
