- If you can find and fit your British scout uniform, you can supplement it with the British flag; the US Scout uniform only has the US Flag whether or not you are a US citizen.

If you belong to the BS of America, you wear the US flag. If you are a British Scout, you wear the UK flag. Don/AA2F
As it happens I'll be up that way on Saturday doing a D-STAR demo. If I
can find my uniform (and still get into it) I'll bring it along for a
spot of show-n-tell.
Speaking of uniform, Anyone know how the BSA might feel about me NOT
wearing the American flag on my district uniform but instead replacing
it with the British one? Haven't tried it yet and I'm wondering if
anyone would notice.
