Yes the new LQ badge was introduced in Sept. It is only available from your Badge Secretary as it it a 'Registered B Goods' It has been suggested that newly qualified Leaders who completed their LQ from 1st Sept should be given the badge at the same time as being presented with the LQ Certificate. But the financial decision needs to be made locally as to who pays (e.g. Unit, District, Division, County).
All existing qualified Leaders may purchase the badge (£1.50).
Have tried to upload a picture of it, but have failed.
It was in Guiding magazine a few months ago; also in Guiding Essentials page 29.

im, not sure so im just gona get in touch with my DC n ask them
You should be able to get one from Double Pennant Boat yard. That is West Mercia Badge depot. It is in Tettenhall. If you have access to a County Book, phone number is in there.

I've got one, got it at Warks county day on Saturday. It's massive!

I didn't have to go through badge secretary, I was able to get it from the shop, but the shop manager was checking Appointment cards, particularly of Guiders she doesn't know.
