That simple W in a diamond was not a Webelos rank patch, that is it was not an
award and, at least orginally, was not worn as a pocket rank patch.
The W in a diamond was an insigina of the Webelos den. It was worn on the
right sleeve where the den numeral went. My citation? The "Lion-Webelos Cub
Scout Book", copyright 1954, printed 1959, inside back cover.
The only indication of Webelos Achievement was the Webelos award. At that
time the Webelos award was an arrow with rays radiating from it. Yes, we now
call it the Arrow of Light, but then it was called the Webelos Badge.
Citation? Same as above, inside front cover.
Yours in Scouting,
