    It's always been Necker around here (South Wales)

    I've noticed that most of you have stripey neckers, I've only seen one other half and half here (fmolesey). I've been in this group since I was a beaver (I'm now almost 28) so it seems strange to me that there aren't more of them about.

    Necker. Never heard it referred to as a scarf - none of our Group would have a clue if you told them to put their scarves on!?!

    For heaven's sake, Peeps:

    A student, a schoolboy, an opera-goer and a football supporter all wear scarves .... Scouts wear Neckers! Seemplez!

    I think the poll makes it clear. Necker wins!

    No. NO!

    I never heard it called THAT WORD in my whole childhood. "Hats and Scarves!" was the shout at beginning and end of Cub and Scout meetings. (We never wore such things DURING.... too violent a group!)

    I am slowly converting my current group in Cambridge. I am authoritatively calling them scarves and people are coming into line :-)

    I once called them scarves - and now I tend to call them neckers. I think I'm the only one in the District....

    although to quote from POR
    Rule 10.5 Beaver Scout Uniform
    a. Items of official uniform:
     turquoise crew neck sweatshirt;
     Group scarf;
     maroon woggle or one of another
    Chapter 10, POR
    so it seems that is ought to be scarves

    yup... my scouts are not allowed scarves on during the meetings and are encouraged to wear a t-shirt...

    my childhood was soundtracked by the noise of buttons pinging across the hut. it still happens sometimes these days during a decent game of murderball or bulldog and I smile at the memories.
