Another eBay buy as I have found no trace of Neckerchiefs in the offline world.
This one I confirmed as circa 1960 as it has the slider from that era. Well I did.
Red seems to be the usual color for but there are also other colors such as blue. OK there is just read and blue as far as I know.
This has the red with yellow graphics. There are others that are red with just a bit of yellow trim on the edges. The one I bought displays better I think.
The neckerchief is not a mandatory piece of the uniform. But if a troop wears them they must all be the same. They can also be worn under or over the collar. For my display I think under the collar looks better. Norman Rockwell paintings had them over the collar. Easier to paint I think.
