Since you cannot find any definitive information regarding this
question logic tells me that there is a distinction between youth
insignia and adult insignia. The boys although they are allowed to
wear a patrol patch at their option the adult leader is not. The adult
leader I think should continue to wear the Den number. The pack will I
think continue to refer to the Den by its assigned number.
