“Below Zero” badges

A few years ago, I spotted an image of an old “Below zero” badge on a Fylde Scout Group website. I really fancied getting these badges for our Scout blankets or for use as an “occasional” badge. Unfortunately the badges are no longer made, so I got in touch with a badge manufacturer to see if they could help out. I updated the design and had some made.

I’ve managed to get my local District Commissioner to approve these as “occasional” badges to be worn on uniform for Cubs and Scouts who have camped out on nights when the temperature has fallen “below zero”. Even without uniform approval, they make great badges for camp blankets / scarves.

The badges are 40mm x 50mm and they’ve been selling for £1.50 each on eBay.

When I can avoid eBay and PayPal fees, I can offer them for £1.20 each with postage charged at cost price.

Get in touch if you’re interested in buying these badges and enjoy your Winter scouting 🙂
