Could we add labels with hyperlinks to the badges - e.g. I have no idea of the name of the um-interesting star on the left epaulette.

The clip-art-like Advancement badges are underwhelming.

But Forward, the Light Brigade!.. 
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of death Rode the six hundred.

Badge position discrepancies

File:Scout Badge Chart 2019.png

There are a few differences between:

The key differences are:

  • Interest badges: 3 badges/row vs 4 badges per row (IMO: 4 badges lines up with the seam of the sleeve - seems more correct as in SSA-Uniform-Policy2020).
  • LDC/PLTC: In "PLTU: position vs Bottom of RH Sleeve (IMO: PLTU position is how scouts are wearing the badge as per Scoutwiki - this seems more correct).

Good points. The policy document would be the official one. Two other differences I spotted - inclusion of the Diversity Awareness badge above the Cub and Scout right pockets, and the Burrowing Up Badge above the Cub left pocket. ScoutWeb (talk) 08:34, 25 April 2022 (SAST)
I've updated the Scout image to match the policy. Some of the links from the image still need updating. ScoutWeb (talk) 12:19, 27 April 2022 (SAST)
What is the badge with a tree shown under the Scout Interest Badges? ScoutWeb (talk) 10:29, 28 April 2022 (SAST)
That is the LDC badge - it is a course pre-requirement for PLTU - and as this it is mostly worn on the chest where the PLTU badge is worn, until PLTU has been awarded. The wording in #LDC_and_PLTC indicates it should be worn on the chest - but the diagram shows the sleeve - could we remove it from the shoulder? Kite.henley (talk) 06:44, 30 April 2022 (SAST)
