    I've always called it a necker, probably from my days in Brownies and Guides.

    Have always used scarf and/or neckerchief as interchangeable. Never called it a 'necker', though.

    Rupert Bear wears a scarf, as did Doctor Who. Scouts wear neckerchief, shortened to 'necker' or 'neckie'. Quite where the addition of a K on the front came from bewilders me...

    From those who have trouble sorting their Neckers from their Knickers!

    For some reason I tend to call my group scarf a scarf and any other neckerchief a necker.

    Necker!

    People who are young, cool and "trendy" try to be so by not rolling it up and just wearing it as is... what they don't realise is... it looks worse

    Necker in our group and I have a square one in our colours dating from a long time ago.
    Our Scouts call our Necker colours "Blood n Guts" (Red and Yellow) and we fold in the ends (Iron in!) so they have to keep it clean and pressed so the ends don’t fall out.
    (That’s the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and the Leaders)I think we are the only group that dose that to our necker.

    It was a scarf when I was a cub and scout in the south east. I'm in the midlands now and it is most definitely a necker here.
