From the start of the Ranger section in 1916, through to around 1940, Rangers had interest badges to work on.  They appear to all have been withdrawn at that stage, probably because the Ranger section was focused on work for the new Home Emergency Service badge, and on war work.  Thereafter there were themed certificates which Rangers could work on, as part of their programme, but they did not come with individual badges.  In the 1990s, staged badges were introduced for Rainbows, Brownies and Rangers, but these were eventually withdrawn.  In 2018, with the coming of a new Ranger programme, new interest badges are now available.  But lets look back at the old badges.
