The belt loop skill awards system was started in the later 1970s. I know it ran through the 1980s but am not sure when it ended. But it was a bit of bling for the belt. Speaking belts I have bought three so far for this project. The one that came with the loops was too small and the second a no show.
There were at least 12 of these awards. Seven are represented here. I think they were replaced by meret badges as they cover similar areas. Now to cover which are present in this post.

Photo #3 - Cooking, Citizenship and First Aid
Photo #4 - Hiking and Communication
Still have a few more pieces to add before the 1980s boy scout display is ready for viewing.
