Approved Placement of the Commissioner Arrowhead Honor Emblem

According to the Fall / Winter 2008 edition of the The Commissioner, based on the new Boy Scout Centennial Uniform design, it has been approved for the Commissioner Arrowhead Honor emblem to be worn on the left sleeve of the Commissioner’s uniform immediately below the Council Strip. This replaces the previous placement of below the badge of office for Commissioners.

Isn’t the nit number immediately below the council strip? If you below to a local unit, where do you post the arrowhead honor award?

According to the Insignia Guide, the Arrowhead Honor Award is “Worn only with a commissioner badge of office.”

You wouldn’t wear unit numerals with a Commissioner patch since it is not a unit position.

Therefore, you’d never find yourself in a position of having the Arrowhead Honor Award and Unit numerals on your uniform at the same time.
