Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: Uniforms and Common Sense
Uniforms and Common Sense
Sun, 13 Jun 1999 14:54:44 EDT
I was reading some of the Uniform Inspection sheets today and read some very
interesting information although I am sure this is not news to anyone else.
The "Male Leader Uniform Inspection Sheet" No 34284 says "The basic rule is
neatness. Conduct uniform inspection with common sense. It is not the
purpose of the inspection to embarrass anyone."
The "Female Leader Uniform Inspection Sheet" No 34281A says "Conduct uniform
inspection with common sense; the basic rule is neatness."
I don't have a copy of the youth inspections sheets here, but I am sure that
they have similar words.
Noting the "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" discussions which
we sometimes have on this list about the uniform, this common sense counsel
seemed very wise, not only for us each to follow but for us to use in guiding
and teaching those with which we have some influence.
