Hi everyone
Hoping someone can help me out!

I am about to sew by guide badges onto my camp blanket and acheived some of the emblems at the time. I want to group my badges together with the appropriate emblem (I know, OCD!) but cannot find my guide badge book anywhere.

If anyone has their guide badge book to hand (I was a guide from 1988 - 1993 when the sash and Jeff Banks uniform first came out) and could list which interest badges were needed for each emblem or can point me to where this info is already online I would REALLY appreciate it!

I have a 1992 badge book, I can list them for you later when I'm back at home. I do know that there were only a couple of badges that didn't count towards any emblem but most did.

Science and Technology Emblem was a new addition in 1992 I think, but I'll list the badges for it anyway.

I have all this info on a spreadsheet that I have at home. I can upload this spreadsheet for all to have a look at.

Ooh that's a nice idea Stacey. I had all my interest badges on my sashes in the order I got them (OCD here too I think ;-) ) so I've grouped all my emblems together but that sounds great. I got 3 arts and craft ones and the only one I didn't get at all was the science one because I never got my science investigator, which is a bit ironic since I ended up doing science at University!

Just for peoples reference! :)
The badges had become the coloured versions in this edition rather than just blue.
A lot more badges were now included in the lists, giving greater choice for what to earn for each emblem. Only Angler, Challenge, Chess, Collector, Friend to Animals, Holiday, Hobbies, Local History, Reader and Secretary don't fit into any catergory.
