Adult Leader Training, Wood Badge
"In 1919 the first leader training program was created, and ran at Gilwell Park. On completion Baden Powell presented the leaders with their wood Badge, and became members of 1st Gilwell Park, the worlds biggest group. This was not an actual badge but a set of wood beads on a leather thong. The idea came from a Zulu Chief called Dinuzulu who wore a 12 foot necklace containing over 1000 beads on state occasions. Having being given beads from the necklace, Baden Powell made the first award. A Turks head woggle was used, which has no beginning or end to symbolize the bond of scouting and Gilwell scarf could then be worn."
