Throughout its history the Scouting Movement has been clearly identifiable by its uniform. The public accepts the Scout uniform as a symbol of an organisation with high ideals and certain self-discipline.
With a few minor alterations the original Scout uniform has met the ideas of Scouts around the world and has been universally adopted. Of course, in extreme climates, it has been modified to suit the conditions but on the whole; the different nations in the temperate climates are dressed alike.
All youth members are required to wear a Scout Uniform.
Members will require the following items
- Shirt – either Button up or Polo. (Button up are easier to sew on the badges)
- Cub Scouts Shirts – Yellow Sleaves
- Scout Shirts - Green Sleeves
