I had the question posed to me about designing a Scoutmaster Emeritus patch. My solution was to create an Emeritus arc for wearing below any three inch patch. You can see my design on http://www.sageventu...re/blanket.html which is in the middle several rows from the top. If you are interested, my email address is on the website and you are welcome to contact me.

These guys had one made. You could probably use the same company and order more at a discount: http://www.scout119.... Award/BobB.htm

Why? BSA recognizes to such position. You are either an SM or you are an ASM.

I don't understand the purpose of this item. If the individual is still wearing his uniform, doesn't such imply that he is a currently registered Scouter? And would that not mean he has some other position which would then, naturally, call for a new position patch? It's not as though Scoutmaster is such a revered position that it has to be memorialized while the wearer is still serving in some capacity. I dunno, it seem rather superfluous to me. And if he isn't a registered Scouter anymore, why is he in uniform in the first place? This seems to me like a poorly thought-out idea. No wonder the BSA does not recognize this as a legitimate insignia - it makes little to no sense.

There is no such word as "Webelo." 

The only proper singular of Webelos Scouts is ... WEBELOS SCOUT!

That was my thinking too. Unless the idea is that he wear the SM patch with his patch underneath which, as you correctly point out, would be false advertising. He's not SM so he wouldn't wear the SM patch, would he?

 

Folks will know if you are a former SM by wearing your Scouter's Key.

The patch is superfluous.

 

Faithful old scouters are always recognized and respected, even in street clothes.
