Area 2-G 1961 Conclave Neckerchief Slides

An update to the post on the 1961 Section 2-G Area Conclave.Mark Eddy sends along images of the neckerchief slides which were also issued for the event.

Mark writes:

For the 1961 examples I have enclosed the red ones on the opposite bias saw cut. There may be an opposite cut for the blue example but I cannot remember.

Interestingly enough, the 1961 slides were cut from scrap shovel handles. They were obtained from Union Fork & Hoe in Frankfort, NY. Camp Russell is about 45 minutes north of Frankfort. Frankfort had Scout Troops and were in the old General Herkimer Council.

Here are is the red versions:

And the Blue version:

Area 2-G 1961 Blue Neckerchief Slide

Actually I have a scan of the opposite bias on the blue slide too:
