My suggestion would be to see if you get a stencil of the patrol patch or Troop numbers
and suggest to Tommie Tenderfoot that he could be the first to have a cool scout look by
painting over the Marlborough image with that of his patrol or troop. I think that he
would go for that, but I would not demand it be changed if he and his parents were cool
to the idea.
