The full Explorer Scout uniform, which is worn during the winter months and on all formal occasions, consists of:

  • Hat with a ‘Explorer’ tally band (Seaman’s Class 2 round cap – see diagram for correct fitting)

  • Group Scarf with ‘wheel’ badge (see diagram for correct badge position)

  • Sea Scout Shirt

  • Black trousers (Regular/Straight fit school trousers – see description below)

  • Plain black socks and smart black shoes (socks should be above the ankle)

Staged Activity badges should be taken off your Scouts jumper and moved over to your Explorer shirt as these badges reflect everything you have done from Beavers, Cubs to Scouts and on to Explorers.





Explorer’s black trousers should be a Regular/Straight Fit i.e. the trouser legs are straight all the way down and are neither tapered nor flared. The following styles are not acceptable as part of the Explorers Uniform: Flares, Drainpipes/Skinny, Wide Fit, Bootcut or Hipster.
