Stu asked: Do adult Webelos Leaders wear the patrol emblem?
>From what I can find, officially no.
The Male Leader Uniform Inspection Sheet states:
Right Sleeve. U.S. flag. Den numeral, if applicable, is worn 2 inches below
The Cub Scout Leader Book States:
5. Den numerals. Worn by Cub Scout den leaders and Webelos den leaders
centered and touching the bottom of the U.S.flag on the right uniform
My personal thoughts are: Webelos Leaders are not part of the patrol, the
same as in Boy Scouts. When a patrol is formed, you as a leader are
encouraging the boys to become more self reliant. And as much as we want to
be young again, we don't want to ruin the learning experience for the boys.
