Culver Palms District
          Adult Leader Training, goes back to
the beginning of Crescent Bay Council in the 1920's. The Council developed its first training troop for adults sometime in the late 1930's. The outbreak of WW II depleted the number of adult leaders for troops and the Council stepped up its efforts to recruit and train adults to continue the scouting program. Adult District Leadership Patrols were formed during the 1940's. These patrols were phased out in the mid 1950's when a Council-wide training program was instituted in 1955.

Embroidered on No-twill.
It is unclear what the origins of the
 "Gold Trail" were. Maybe it was a landmark
in the West Los Angeles area.

Embroidered on No-Twill.
Speculation has been that "Gold Trail"
was the inspiration for naming
Golden Trails District when
Westwood District was divided in 1957.


Embroidered on No-twill.
Another possibility is that Gold Trail
was from Beverly Hills District or that
 Gold Trail Adventure Training was a
joint activity conducted by Westwood
and Beverly Hills Districts

101, 258 & 459

Trainer
1955-72


The original Crescent Bay Council Training Troop was organized in the 1930's as Troop 101. Perhaps it was given the number 101 because at the time, it was thought the entire Council would never have more than 100 troops and the number would not conflict with a regular unit. Troop 101 appears to have been disbanded by the early 1940's.

The Trainer patch was introduced in December of 1955 as a way of recognizing trainers for outstanding achievement.



Embroidered on twill. Troop 101. This patch was the same size as a red patrol patch and was meant to be worn on the shoulder.

 
By 1956-57, training was
reorganized into its own troop again as
Troop 258. In the early 1960's, a
cub leader training troop (or pack)
was organized as Troop 459.

 
Embroidered on No-twill. Originally meant for wear on the shoulder, this patch was also worn on the
Troop 258 neckerchief.

Training Segments



Mid 1960's




1962 Reunion
September 8 & 9, 1962
Circle B Scout Ranch




These green trained segments were intended for wear around other patches or under the troop numerals on the shoulder.

The 1962 Training reunion was a special event for past Troop 258 members. The patch was worn on the Troop 258 neckerchief above or the numerals.

Like the green trained segments,
the red segment is believed to have been worn around other patches like the scoutmaster or assistant scoutmaster insignia.
