Welcome to Boy Scout Images.  This site was created by scouting historians and collectors to showcase different areas of Scouting history, provide meaningful information about how items changed throughout the years, information about how to earn various badges, and so much more.  Whether you are a veteran Scouter, a past member, a collector, or just looking for more information, this site has something to offer.

You can become a contributor to the site by reviewing the current information and images and if you see an error or have addition information or have an item that should be included please contact us so we can update the site.

The site has more than 5,000 images and is growing. We are adding new images and information every day.  Currently, areas which are reviewed and ready to view are the following:

Using the links across the top of any page will direct you to main categories and subcategories.  From there you will see National version pictures.  Clicking on a specific title will bring up much more information and known variations we cataloged.  Searching by title or year will also give additional variations. 

 We look forward to expanding this site on the next year and hope you help spread the word.

Yours in Scouting,
