Throughout our history, Guiding members of all ages have worn scarves and ties.
The shape of the Guide Tie can be traced back to the beginnings of Guiding and Scouting, when a triangular scarf was worn. The scarf was carefully sized so that it could be used as a triangular bandage. It was also used to protect the neck from sunburn when outdoors, for signalling messages to others too far away to hear a shout, to filter debris from water, and many other things!
This handy guide will help you identify the scarves and ties in your collection – and how to wear them!
