Below is a Troop Uniform Policy which I have always
found to be reasonble. Paragraph 2 addresses the problem
described above.... "Class A' is worn to and from the trip,
and the boys change into appropriate "field uniforms".
This policy is at:
Boy Scout Troop 477 Uniform Policy
Troop 477's uniform consists of the official uniform shirt and pants
with the following accessories: red shoulder bars, scout belt, red
and black neckerchief, and special Troop 477 visor cap. The shirt
is to be equipped with the following insignia: The Atlanta Area Council
patch, the Troop numerals "477", and the American flag patch.
(See inside front and rear covers of the official Boy Scout Handbook
for templates showing proper placement of patches.) The Troop 477
visor cap may be purchased from the Troop Quartermaster. The
neckerchief slide may be an official Boy Scout slide or a handmade
slide. Rubber bands, string, etc., are not acceptable replacements
for a neckerchief slide.
All Scouts will be in uniform at Scout meetings and activities, and
when the Troop is involved in public activities. The merit badge sash
will be worn on special occasions such as a Court of Honor.
All Scouts are expected to wear their uniform both to and from camping
trips, hiking trips, and service projects unless given other instructions
by the Scoutmaster or Senior Patrol Leader.
In the summer months, Scouts may wear a scouting related T-shirt
and the official uniform shorts if worn with the official scout socks.
Uniforms will be inspected at Troop meetings and at other special
meetings as desired by the Senior Patrol and the Scoutmaster. New
Scouts have one month before they are expected to have their uniforms
and begin to participate in inspections.
Consult the Scout Handbook for specific details on how to wear the
uniform and badges properly (inside front and rear covers)!! Any questions
regarding insignia may be addressed to the Troop Committee or Scoutmaster.
