    We used to have one of those. Then our Scouts decided that the bucket needs to have an actual fire in it. Plastic buckets don't mix too well with fire.

    It was always a Necker when I was a kid in the North East and so that is what my southern, scarf-wearing Scouts now call it!

    PS I say it was always a 'Necker' - always except for our ancient DC, now long gone, who always called it a 'Kerchief'!

    Neckerchief all the time. Never scarf.

    On the same sort of note, what about the other part of uniform. I call it a woggle, but I've had parents come to us and call it a wiggle, a toggle, and a 'thing'.

    I've also heard it called a slide (but not by anybody in the Group)

    So, how confusing can we get, then?

    Investiture time and we give the little darling a choice of wearing a neckerchief, neckie, necker, or scarf, with a woggle, toggle, thing, or slide.

    It's no wonder the children are confused when us adults can decide!

    It's a neckerchief, if you want to call it by it's proper name. Or it's called a scarf if you trying to be young, cool and trendy.

    It's obviously a neckerchief.

    My elderly (1940s) OED says:

    Scarf: A long strip of material worn wound round the head, neck or shoulders, usually for warmth.

    Neckerchief: A folded square or triangle of cloth worn around the neck for decoration.

    That will do for me - it's a Neckerchief!
