Chief Scout’s Length of Service Awards

  1. Service in the Association is recognised by the Chief Scout’s Length of Service Award at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 year Intervals. A certificate and either a cloth emblem or brooch with a white knot and corresponding green number is available to all Members and Associate Members of the Association as determined by the Appointment Process Table 2: Appointments in POR.

  2. Qualifying service for the above awards need not be continuous.

  3. Any service given while holding an adult appointment whilst a member of the UK Scout Association counts towards service. This does not cover services whilst in a youth role such as Scout Network. However, if a qualifying adult appointment was held concurrently, that service would count. 

  4. Overseas service with another Scout Association does not count towards service. However, active service whilst part of British Scouting Overseas or Branches is recognised.
