Good morning all,
I have always been curious as to the difference between the trained patches. It does seem like they are all very similar, but are some newer versions of others? For instance, when would you wear the red trained patched over the green one? I will list the trained patches I have found in numerical order. Could someone please explain the appropriate wear them?
1.) Cub Scout Trained Leader Emblem, SKU: 18120
2.) BSA Trained Leader Strip, SKU: 280
3.) Scouts BSA Trained Leader Strip, SKU: 18064
4.) Retired Strip Emblem, SKU: 281
The two red patches are almost identical; however, it seems as though one is shorter than the other in width. Also, I have seen some of my friends who have completed NAYLE years ago wear a NAYLE trained shoulder patch. Is this patch official? I cannot seem to find many pictures of it online.
As always, thank you for your time and wisdom regarding these questions!
Yours in Scouting,
Jordan “Orca” Diliberto
