In the previous edition of the BSA handbook (9th edition), the belt loops
were the way of recognising a form of advancement called skill awards.
These skill awards were for many of the same things as MB's but at an
easier level. For Tenderfoot, Citizenship and another were required. For
Second Class, Hiking, First Aid, and another one were required. For First
Class, Camping, Cooking, and another were required, along with First Aid
Hope this helps.
