The Big Red One Boy Scout Patrol Patch
« on: May 17, 2016, 08:34:35 PM »
Just purchased this patch through an army buddy of mine in the States, the seller won't ship to Germany, couldn't even contact him,  >:( but I had to have it.
Anyway, does anybody have any idea why the Boy Scouts would have a 1st Infantry Division Patrol patch? ???

 The Boy Scouts offer a patrol patch blank for sale in most Scout shops. A unit can then make their own patrol outside of those pre-fabricated for Scouting. It is encouraged in some units as a sign of originality and of course a point of pride.  Scott.
Always looking for 32nd Division items and 13th Armored Division items. Please keep me in mind if you have any.

Its kinda doubtful from the vendors amount sold that a troop patrol has actually adopted this patch.

Well, thanks anyways Gents, reckon it will stay a mystery.
Main thing is I was always looking around for a mini BRO patch, finally got one, pays to be patient sometimes, which I'm not. ;)
