A leader badge tab is part of a leader’s uniform.
The badge tab is used to display the metal badges such as their promise badge and other badges they have earned.
Each tab has a different coloured strip at the top, representing the section the badge tab is for e.g.
Rainbow Leader – Light Blue
Brownie Leader – Yellow
Guide Leader – Dark Blue
The number of badges you display on your badge tab is down to what you think is sensible. There is not a fixed number, though 5 may be seen as sufficient e.g.
- Promise badge
- qualifications and awards, including DofE (adult members may wear the highest award that they achieved as a young member, such as the Queen’s Guide Award)
- long service badge
- County/Country badge
- Role specific badges (Trainer, Commissioner)
- World Badge
- Current celebratory/commemorative badge (eg Big Brownie Birthday, Diamond Jubilee) – these badges should be removed from the badge tab after the period that they are celebrating/commemorating
- Challenges – some cross-sectional challenges are also open to adults and have a metal pin (such as Changing The World).
