When I joined Scouting, the overseas cap was the standard cap for Boy Scouts and Explorers. For the first several decades of the program, Cub Scouts wore a beanie-type cap with a small bill at first, then a larger bill, finally switching to a basebal-style cap. Over the years different patches have adorned the BSA hats. To view the diamonds used on the official uniform caps for each program, just click on the appropriate link below. If you know of any items or additional information about a particular item or issue, please drop me a note at the address below. Thanks!
