Girl Scout Badges - Khaki



Girl Scout badges on khaki fabric were launched in 1918, the designs were the same as the badges on white felt. The khaki fabric used went through a few changes, and the quality of embroidery thread seems to have varied. In 1920 several new badges were offered, and badge designs, names and requirements changed throughout the years. 1927 was the last official year of khaki badges.
