Thrift store uniforms

I find uniform finds 3-4 times a year at the local thrift stores. Just
make it a point to stop when you're close by and do it regularly. It
seems that our uniform back is like that biblical pot of oil which doesn't
run out - we always seem to have just what we need for uniforms in the
uniform bank now - no more and no less. When we're low, someone turns one
in or we find one. Thanks to Mike Walton, who sent us our first two
uniform shirts for our bank when we first started it two years ago. You
never know what will become of those small gestures. Two cub shirts has
literally uniformed our Pack.
Now - my latest donation to the uniform bank is two olive-colored (not
khaki) Boy Scout shirts with no collars. Can someone date them? Can we
use them? Once a uniform, always a uniform right? Are there any special
"uniform parts" which must be worn with this style of shirt?
There is also a collarless blue Cub shirt sitting on the rack at the local
thrift store. Should I pick that up for the closet?
