The round badge over the left pocket is the Patrol emblem. The white lanyard usually indicates that the Guide is either a Patrol Leader or Patrol Second but this is usually also shown by two/one white vertical stripes on the left pocket. The row of metal stars on the left pocket flap show the years of service attained (brown cloth ground for Brownies, green for Guides,red for Rangers). The blue and white cord over the right shoulder is the 'All Round Cords' awarded after attaining First Class, and any other seven tests (one of which must be an outdoor badge) in addition to those included in the First Class.
