United States Cub Scout Uniforms: The 1950s--Conventions

Figure 1.--These Cubs in the 1950s are mostly not wearing the uniform. Perhaps it was not an official Cub event. I alwats remember wearing our uniforms for Cub meetings and activities.

It was less common than today to see Cubs wearing jeans or other non-uniform pants with their uniform shirts. Most boys wanted to wear the full uniform. The uniform was usually worn with leather shoes. I know in our Cub group in the early 1950s that we all wore the full unifom, complete with cap--but with long pants. I do not remember boys coming to our pack meetings wearing non-uniform items. Some available photographs show more variation--but this is not how I remember it as a boy.
