    Neckers

    Hi everyone

    i am trying to catalog neckers from all over the world starting with the uk the plain, banded and half and half neckers are easy enough to do but any with badges or more complex paterns are causing problems if anyone has a necker like this could they send me a pic of either the badge or the necker to dessy292002 at yahoo dot co dot uk i am also hoping to do an internet page sometime maybe to describe the history of each necker too

    Several groups use this:

    It was actually inspired by the logos used as signatures i hadn't realised anyone else had started it but pretty sure someone would have done

    Sorry, I meant that my post was inspired by neilr... his signature Scarf uses Royal Stewart Tartan.

    Apologies for the confusion.

    It would be hard enough getting the name of every group in the UK.

    If you login to scouts.org.uk and click on Organisation Details you can expand the structure into Areas, Counties, Districts youll get the name of every group.

    And how easy is it going to be to find out the scarf for each of those?

    It depends how you do it and where you go for the information. Info Centre will have access to that sort of information if theyd spend the time compiling a list for you. Also quite a few districts, including mine ( http://www.stocktonthornabydistricts...com/groups.php ) have information like that on their websites.

    Ours are in my signature. Most Groups in our District have a Group necker badge as well

    Grove's necker is in my signature. I can send you a photo and find out the history if you'd like. I think the colours have been derived from 3 groups that have merged over the years.

    I don't have my scarf in my signature, purely as we're changing it and the embrodary is very hard to do.

    I do think that some groups may ask to pay as some scarves are expensive to get.
