Congratulations to all who received the World Scout Environment Badge and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Badge.

DETAILS: At the centre of the World Scout Environment Badge is Antarctica - the only collectively managed continent in the world and one of the most at risk from climate change. The other landforms create a 'world' image - not showing any one particular continent or country, as Scouts are encouraged to look beyond their own borders and think of the world. The colours of blue, green and white are commonly associated with nature and the purple of World Scouting is blended with these. The Sun which brings life to our world is reflected in the water.

POSITION: The World Scout Environment Badge is to be worn at the base of the right sleeve.

DETAILS: To celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee of 60 years as a British Monarch, the Chief Commissioner of Australia has approved the usage of a special badge, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee badge, to mark the event.

POSITION: Tthe Queen's Diamond Jubilee Badge can be worn on the right breast of the shirt or sewn on to a camp blanket.
