Read “Scouting With a Neckerchief”
BY COMMODORE W. E. Longfellow at:

Our guest, Dr. James Flatt shares his extensive neckerchief collection. As one of the oldest parts of the Scout uniform, neckerchiefs are often hard to find and identify. However, almost lodges have had a Neckerchief. What does yours look like?

– When was the last time you wore a neckerchief?
– Do you remember those Scout shirts without collars?

You may find a neckerchief with the lodge flap or lodge patch sewn in it. Why? It may very well be a conference contingent neckerchief–not just something a Scouts mom made!
