Brownie Golden Hand Certificate 1959

Brownie Certificate

  • Brownie Golden Hand Certificate of Barbara Davies
  • 3 September 1959
  • 140 x 89mm (5½ x 3½in)

Those who had completed Golden Hand received a special badge - Brownie Wings - to wear on the sleeve of their uniform just above the cuff, and they had a special 'flying up' ceremony, over a giant paper mache toadstool, when they moved on to Guides.

Those Brownies who did not manage to complete Golden Hand would 'walk up' to Guides, often with a slightly different ceremony, and they did not get a leaving badge.
