What's it? Identification Service
As we research more items and Scouting history, we are often presented with items that we can not identify. If you can help identify them, it would be appreciated. The camp pictures have been reduced 50%. You can e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's what we've found out so far. Thanks for those who have provided information.
4/6/99 - The yellow shield with the blue BM is from Camp Blue Mountain, Schuylkill County Council, Pottsville, PA circa 1938 - 1940. -- Charlie Gregory
4/6/99 - dark teepee - if there is a CW on the patch, it is from Camp Wauwepex - I have a brown felt and a dark maroon felt variety. - Bob Sherman
4/6/99 - the green patch with the red c is from camp ames in new jersey. I picked up one of these with a suposed pre-oa armband and later patches which actually had ca and then later issues that had a green c/e and white twill bkg - Roger Ward
4/6/99 - The fourth picture you have has a green felt tree with tiny white dots outlining it. This patch comes from a pre-orderof the arrow society in the Portland Area Council called Vi Et Concilio, which is the slogan on Merriwether Lewis's family crest (of the Lewis &Clark expidition). It means "By Power and knowledge" This organization existed during the first 20 years of Camp Merriwether. You will see the slogan still used on a lot of Camp Merriwether patches. - Paul Collett
5/30/00 - The indian head with "F" on it is from Camp Fellsland circa 1950-1963. - Bud Farnsworth.
10/10/11 - The Arrowhead patch at center bottom, with the B, is believed by local experts to be from Camp Brinton, located near Agency, Missouri. This would have been the council camp for the council based in St. Joseph, MO. I believe the name derives from the local farmer from whom the land was loaned. It is my recollection that the camp began in the late teens to early 1920s. This camp served as the birthplace for the Tribe of Mic-O-Say, as we know it in Missouri. Matt Perryn Kansas City, MO
