The Chief Scout's Commendation for Good Service: Awarded in respect of not less than 5 years good service, which stands out. It should be regarded as the Chief Scout's recognition of the very real contribution made to the Scouts by the individual concerned.
The Award for Merit: Awarded for outstanding service. It implies keen, conscientious, imaginative and dedicated service over a sustained period, of at least 12 years duration (exceptionally 10).
The Bar to the Award for Merit: Awarded after at least five years of further outstanding service after receiving the Award for Merit.
The Silver Acorn: Awarded after at least 20 years’ service, which should be specially distinguished and appreciably better than outstanding.
