Object Name Scarf, Neck
Description 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 green neckerchief was worn by those going through the training. The training usually takes a year or more to complete. Since c. 1998 the green neckerchief has been replaced by one made of the Gilwell tartan. 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.
