A third bead would indicate the individual is a member of the staff for Woodbadge training, and a fourth bead represents the person in charge of Woodbadge training at the council level. Woodbadge is an international adult training program for Boy Scouts. All Woodbadge trainees become a part of the original Boy Scout Troop 1 in Gilwell, England. Gilwell was the home of Sir Baden Powell who started the international scouting movement. The training usually takes a year or more to complete. All awards and badges in accession number 2012.117 were awarded to Mr. Raymond Smith in the 1940s as a youth and later as an adult leader.
