Everything Old is New Again – Area 2-G 1971 NOAC Patch

Or is that everything new is old again?

You may have thought that a two piece set was a relatively modern phenomenon. The flap and chevron set seems to have started with Pappago Lodge 3494 back in 1988 with their 35th Anniversary set.

Neale Cummings has sent along a patch issued back in 1971 by Area 2-G. It is only a ‘chevron’, but is meant to be worn with your home lodge flap.

Area 2-G 1971 Conclave Camp Russell

I have two issues from the 1971 Area 2-G Conclave, a pocket patch and a neckerchief, which are pictured below. Neale Cummings indicates that there were other issues including a jacket patch a neckerchief slide, and a conservation award. The conclave was held at Camp Russell in Woodgate, NY and hosted by Kamargo Lodge #294.

and the neckerchief:

Neale also indicates that Area 2-G issued a patch and neckerchief for the 1971 NOAC.

I’d be interested in trading for any of these 2-G issues (NOAC and Conclave) which are not pictured here.

Update:

Neale Cummings has sent along an image of the Jacket Patch from the 1971 Area 2-G Conclave.

Update 2: August, 2008

Neale Cummings sends along an image of the uncut/punched leather neckerchief slide created for the 1971 Area 2-G Conclave.

Update Dec. 11, 2010 Mark Eddy provides a scan of some additional examples of the leather neckerchief slides:

Update March 2017:
Mark Eddy sends along a couple of scans of additional color variations and an error version of the Area 2-G 1971 Conclave Leather Neckerchief Slides.

It seems likely that scrap leather was used for these, so they may well exist on other colors as well.

There is also a 1791 error version.
