The patch backstory is a collection of stories behind the patches we collect. It was inspired by New York Scouter, collector, patch designer and historian, Don Tuttle.
We are starting the collection with one story but expect it to grow over time. If you have a story behind a patch that you'd like to contribute to the site, drop me an e-mail at the address below. In the meantime, click on the Elton Scott Shove story link at left for Don's fascinating backstory on this patch.
