Jim and others,
That is the ONLY way I had leaned the meaning of Webelos!
Wolf-Bear-Lion_scouts But then it should have been WObelos!=20
However, that also leaves OUT BOB cats, and there is NO 'E' in wolf.
And the lion badge is now long replaced. For a while there was
this ODD W badge, which really seems to have been the early version=20
of the Webelos badge! Also, back in the 50's the bob cat
was only a PIN, so you still needed 4 cloth badges to complete
the diamond. I have my old cub uniform with Wolf - Bear - Lion
and a big W in the fourth position. The AOL was tranfered to=20
my scout shirt!
Ultimately We'll Be Loyal Scouts makes the most logical sense.=20
But KISMIF never made much sense any way - but it's fun :)
