The origins of the woggle in Scouting lie with the use of rings made from bone, rope or wood, by Boy Scouts to keep their scarves together. These were called boon doggles, as a play on words of their alleged manufacture from dog bones.
A young Scout, Bill Shankley, who was responsible for running a workshop and developing ideas for camping equipment at Gilwell Park, became aware of the American rings, and set out to create something similar. The result was a turk's head knot. He named his creation the woggle to rhyme with the American term.
Woggles were initially worn only by recipients of the Wood Badge, but a popular fashion was soon started in Scouting following an article in the June 1923 edition of The Scout.
That being said...I am offering a Green with Gold Woggle. These are much better than the metal neckerchief slides which Scouts use. Because they are made of cord, they will not get loose and get lost as easily.
These neckershif slides can be used as part of the Official Uniform. Better yet, they are made by an experienced Scouter!
Don't be fooled by the other Woggles. This is stiff enough cord to hold its shape. Plus, True Woggles have three runs of the cord, not two! This is a Traditional Woggle!
While this sale is for a single Woggle. quantities are available. Just drop me a note.
Feel free to ask any questions. I'm more than willing to answer anything!
