leslie's guiding traditions

Click here to edit subtitle

In 1916 the Cadet section was founded to train future Leaders for Guiding, later known as Young Leaders.  At various times their uniform has either been a variation of the adult leader uniform, or of the Ranger uniform, but in each case it has tended to have white details, as for army cadet officers.


In 1917 the Senior Guide section was founded, soon to be known as the Ranger section.  In the 1920s a new section was added, Sea Rangers, and the mainstream group became known as Land Rangers, to differentiate.  In the 1940s the Air Ranger section was added.  In 1968 Land, Sea and Air Rangers, along with Cadets, were merged into the Ranger Guide Service Section, meaning there was no longer a specific group for leadership.  But in 1973, Young Leaders returned.  In the 1990s Rangers and Young Leaders were again brought together as Senior Section.  In 2017 ideas were sought for a new name for the 14-18 age group.  And despite four options being offered, there was an overwhelming vote for a fifth option - Rangers!


Below, I will detail the uniform for each section of the age group, at each point.  I will provide illustrations where I can - these are not always readily available.

1918 Handbook - Cadets

1918 Senior Guide Uniform, too, was the same as the Guide uniform of the day, but Senior Guide/Ranger Proficiency badges were embroidered in red rather than in blue, and the Promise badge was worn on a red ground initially, and later had red enamel infil.  Senior Guide/Ranger Patrols were trees, rather than the birds and flowers of the Guide section.
