The Explorers unlike younger sections is driven by the young members.

What do the uniform & Scarf look like?

We have 2 types of Uniforms, One formal for important presentations and any time the explorers are somewhere to represent the unit, and one informal a more relaxed casual attire for events and regular meetings.

Formal Uniform

The formal uniform is the regular Explorer shirt along with our section scarf. Our section scarf is made up of 3 Key colours, royal blue, white and gold. These colours were specifically selected to pay tribute to our host group, The 14th Walthamstow, whose scarfs are royal blue with gold tips.

Casual Uniform

The Casual uniform is an Grey polo shirt with the section logo. These were selected to allow the explorers to feel comfortable during outdoor meetings and events while still being recognisable that it the Sloths ESU.
