Indy also would have earned one of these, but I'm not sure where he would have it in his own, personal collection:

Yes, I already bought a BSA insignia on Ebay.
I'll place it on the satchel bag with other pins.

I think it would be funny if he had a "Webelos" scarf slide. I don't know why, that just strikes me as a hilarious thought.

WEBELOS were originally "Lions" as a part of the Cub Scout Program and were not a part of the program until 1930. The progression to this term for boys in-between Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts comes much later in the history of American Scouting. Young Henry would have been far too old to have been a part of the Cub Scout program. Humor aside, it would be an anachronism.

Eagle Medals go all the way back to 1912 and have changed very little. (The link is to a picture of the earliest known variation. There is a drawing in the 1910 handbook but it also makes sense that no Eagle would have been awarded before 1912.) The uniform patch came much later, and never replaced the medal, which is worn on the uniform for ceremonial purposes. Although it is not "official" many adults choose to wear their medal on a blazer jacket or suit coat at appropriate Scouting functions.

The eagle medal makes sense to me.
I received a leather Webelos scarf slide yesterday (and I must have one made from straw somewhere). The straw one may be logical at some point...

Well webelos started in 1954, I think. I just thought it was a funny thought is all. Maybe it would be his kid's?

I thought I read in one of the books that he was kicked out of the scouts for eating brownies. Smile

It's funny because Webelos wobble but they don't fall down.

Here all night, folks

I also found a nice brush for the Indiana Jones bag.

You've no idea how many items the bag contains and still is more or less "flat".

Did archeologists use those dental scraper things back then?
Maybe a little hand trowel?

Sweet. So it was a good idea, just one you'd already thought of Smile

The trowel, the measuring tape, a film canister for small and fragile artefacts, root cutter, Marion Ravenwood's lighter ... (Ok, I become obsessed once again)

The most incredible thing is that all that stuff is placed in the bag. And the bag isn't overloaded...

Finally, I change the bag for a WWI gas mask bag, and I add a leather strap too. It's closer to the real thing and has a wonderful original patina.
Everything fits in the bag and it still doesn't look overloaded.

The pins are:
- a BSA tenderfoot pin
- a Besuch in Berlin (Reischtag) pin
- a 1920 archeology club of Chicago pin

Much of the Adventurers Club was dismantled for shipping to Hong Kong for a new attraction called Mystic Manor. Up to the end I was hoping that the funds could be found to purchase the building and turn it into the Magic Castle East. Much of the interactive gags were inspired by Hollywood's Castle. Irma the piano playing ghost became Fingers a spirit that inhabited an old organ. Mysteriously the Spirit Box of Xenobia and the Curator's handwritten notes made they're way into private hands Smile
