Service awards have long been an integral part of the Royal Rangers program, for both adult leaders and boys. But over time, the format of these awards has been subject to change. Many awards used in the past are no longer in use today and have been replaced by new awards representing similar accomplishments. The table below identifies the awards that are no longer in use and the new award that replaced them.
The following guidelines should be followed in relation to these awards:
It should be noted that the new, replacement awards may be worn only after an individual qualifies for the new award. They are not automatically received by virtue of having earned the old award.
It should also be noted that insignia for older awards is no longer available from the Royal Rangers online store or the national office. Leaders may wear older awards if they have earned them (and have not earned the newer awards) but replacement insignia is not available for older awards.
