If the Leader ignores you and approaches another to do YOUR job. Step
between them and take the patches from him with a firm but polite remark
such as - I'll do it this time. or I'll take those.

Simply say "A Scout uniform" and continue what you were about to do as if
it was a perfectly normal albeit rather silly question.
By continually asserting your role in the Pack he will begin to realise
that you intend to perform your role well despite his obstruction. This
of assertive, non agressive role can help the Scouts know how to handle the
same sort of situation. If this situation is affecting the Scouts unduly
should report his actions so that consideration can be made as to whether
he is an appropriate person to have as a Leader.
