Investiture badges and Uniforms


The badges above are the World badge, County badge, District Badge and Group Name Tape. The World Badge, or a version of it, is worn by over 28 million scouts worldwide.   The county badge bears the cross of St Cuthbert and the district badge a roman helmet, representing Chester-le-Street’s Roman heritage. You will get these badges when you join your section, and should be worn with pride.

Where can I buy the uniform?
