I did wonder where My scout shirt was now? The silver start with the #4 in the middle denotes that i was a patrol leader for 4 years . Below that . I was a first class scout. Next i was qualified at erecting tents and at swimming and the red black and yellow shoulder flashes identified my troop ( cant recall the troop name )
