The question was:
>The current Insignia guide doesn't say, but I've read somewhere that the
>knot is for Bronze, Silver, or Gold Medals - not unit, certificate, or Badge.
....and Fred Rogers correctly answered:
>The square knot is worn only for the Bronze, Silver, or Gold Hornaday
>Awards. It is not worn for the unit certificate or the Hornaday Badge.
There's no Insignia Guide reference to this, but there's a simple "Scouters'
The Certificate is presented to a unit or group of five or more Cub Scouts,
Boy Scouts or Explorers. It is considered a unit award, and individuals
don't get anything but the honor of belonging to a Hornaday Award unit.
The Badge is a personal award, and the size of the Badge corresponds to the
size of the other cloth knots (on purpose). Individuals earning the Badge
wear the Badge in the same location that the square knot would be worn, and
do NOT get to wear the square knot.
The square knot is reserved for those earning the medals or the Gold Medallion.
There is a brief reference to some of this on the older Hornaday Award
Hope this clears it up and thanks, Fred for the additional information.
