This Web site is for young and old to explore the badges & collectables available to Scouts of the present and Scouts in years gone by, right back to 1908 and before!
It represents the bringing together of collections from around the Country and the world and although a long way from being complete is a good start to what is available to collect.
Only when a badge or item has been identified and confirmed as genuine and correct will it be entered, supporting information is taken from Headquarters publications of the time and where there are discrepancies they are noted.
We will also explore the difficult world of copies, forgeries, replicas and fakes to try to prevent non original items being passed off as correct.
Although we have uploaded many items so far, we are still in the very early stages of the website, and as many current collectors will know the world of scouting memorabilia is endless.
We are currently uploading lots of items and information to the website, and ask people to bear with us as we work through this mammoth task ,we rely on interested Collectors, Historians and Leaders to assist by providing information or pictures to build the site. At the end of the day this is about building a record of scouting collectibles and inspiring generations to come.
