actual, real, genuine article - the Boguk Standard!
suggested (and designed) at HGC2(B) in Thirtover, way back in
March 2002, it has finally come to fruition and the Standards
are now off the production line and available to buy.
scan above does not do justice to the actual badge as the colours
are much brighter and sharper, and we are very pleased with
the detail the manufacturer has managed to include in the embroidery.

collection, please send a cheque for 1.50 UKP each, made payable
to BOGUK, plus a self-addressed, stamped (ordinary first or

: on the hoist, on a red ground, stands the Boguk,
the symbol of the Best Of
GuidingUK group and
this website. The Guide Blue fly is divided vertically
by a diagonal red band with the initials BOGUK in gold
and horizontally by the wavy white line connecting two
computers, symbolising the Internet without which none
of this would exist. The top left sector of the fly has
the letters H.G.C. in red, standing for Hopeless Guiders'
Camps - for more about these, click
here - and the bottom left has a sailing boat, a tent
and a house to represent the venues of the HGCs. The top
right sector shows a box of chocolates, a glass of wine,
a pint of beer and a bottle of coca-cola, the staple diet
of the average Hopeless Guider ...
