    UK necker or group necker?

    So tomorrow is Remebrance Day and we are, obviously, going on a parade.

    However, I have a question... After attending an international event I have the UK necker. So tomorrow should I wear my UK necker or my group necker?

    I really don't know the answer

    Thanks!

    If you are attending with your group/unit, then group/unit necker it should be.

    If you are attending as a district representative or some other capacity, then District, Gilwell or UK necker would also be OK.

    Yeah, I have to agree that group/unit necker is most appropriate. Really the UK necker would be for international events, when rather than being identified as 3rd local village it would be more appropriate to identify as UK.

    I was always told you wear the one that 'best' represents those you are trying to represent.

    If you are with the Group/Unit then you would be best representing the Group/Unit by wearing their necker. But you are perfectly free to wear any necker that you are entitled to wear.

    I've also seen quite a few leaders with these in the past few years:

    Personally, I would just wear my group necker
