This is an historical reference. It was written in 1908.

What were the Badges of Honour? These were the original merit badges. Baden-Powell was well aware of a boy's need to achieve. He filled this need by creating an advancement structure of levels (ranks) and badges of honor (merit badges).

While the Badges of Honour are no longer available, we still use this system of encouraged achievement in Scouting programs around the world. To review the current program used by the Boy Scouts of America, check out our Rank and Merit Badge pages.
