Council patches

Nassau County Council and
Theodore Roosevelt Council patches

The Council has issued many patches over the years for a multitude of different events. There are way too many patches for one page, so I have broken them into different categories. Look for the menu at the bottom of each page to jump to the other council patch pages.

I scanned many of these patches years ago when file sizes were usually kept low both for space and for download times. I hope to redo these in larger sizes in the future.

Please let me know if you have any patches not shown - even a scan would be appreciated.

Council Shoulder Patches

When I was first in Scouting your town, state, and unit were identified through individual patches on your left uniform sleeve. Then, in 1970, a new policy was enacted that replaced these with a Council Shoulder Patch ("CSP") that was identical for all Scouts in that council. The National Council may have been looking for more uniformity, as there was now one design for everyone in a local council, but that any such plan didn't last long. Since then the CSP situation has exploded, with all sorts of commemorative designs issued, leading to a total lack of conformity as to use. One Scout could wear a decades-old design, while on either side of him could be Scouts wearing completely different designs.

Collecting CSP's has become a big hobby for many patch collectors, and a big money maker for many councils. Our Council has certainly done it's share to add to the CSP craze! Here are the ones found so far. The numbers after some of the patches are from the Blue Book catalog of Scout patches. It looks like that book hasn't been updated lately so many of the patches are not so identified.

Early CSP No details available on this early CSP.
