What I am being asked for is current, written policy that can be used to show Scouts and leaders (specifically ones that were not involved .....uhmmm .... several years ago). I know the correct answer but it isn't an unreasonable question.
I think it is being a bit difficult to say that the picture from the current web based Insignia Guide (at Scouting.org) isn't conclusive - but we live in that kind of world today. The argument that because of the level of detail that the Uniform Inspection Sheet goes into on some items is inconsistent with not describing which shoulder the sash goes over is a better one.
I'm going to guess that the reference got dropped either as an oversight over the years or conciously because "everyone knows" where it goes. Since I don't have a copy of the printed Insignia Guide, I am hoping it spells it out clearly. Anyone have one?
If not, didn't someone here point out the problem re: arrangment of merit badges on the sash to someone at National? Anyone remember who?

We'll see how successful I am in seeing any of my suggested revisions to the ACPP actually making the book.

The thing that gets me is seeing boys wearing a sash on their belt and not their shoulder or wearing both sashs at the same time.
