Lessons learned long ago are still there.


I have been checking out a link that I have from Facebook.  Heres my memory flash.:

I actually cannot remember what mine was.  1970’s are a bit long ago.  I do remember having to sew the darn thing onto my dark blue uniform sleeve.  Then finding out about a month later that I had sewn everything on in the mirror image.  I think thats when I learned to unpick my own sewing well.    Guess who had to sew everything back on the other way around.

Years later I got really hard to sew the badges down the sleeves, remove others as they had to be replaced when emblems took their place.  No wonder I enjoy informing the current guides that leaving the  badges on their sash (except patrol emblems) is a terrific idea. A personal history pathway that can lead to really great discussions with others who want to, are or have do a similar badge.

Yes I still sew things on in mirror image today.
