History of the Wood Badge

In 1919, Baden-Powell introduced a standardised training system for leaders. Scouts who successfully completed the leader training were awarded a Wood Badge. Made of two wooden beads worn at the end of a leather lace, the first bead came from the ceremonial necklace of Zulu Chief Dinizulu, while the second was carved by the recipient.

In 1987, four Wood Badge beads were given to Dinizulu’s grandson as a symbolic act of returning the beads to their rightful heirs.

Today, the tradition of the Wood Badge continues with leaders receiving beads made from acacia wood. Leaders are also enrolled as members of the 1st Gilwell Park Scout Group - where the first Wood Badges were given out in 1919 -, and can wear the distinctive Gilwell scarf and woggle.
