Area and Section Emblems
Kecoughtan Lodge 463, Chanco Lodge 483, and their successor, Wahunsenakah Lodge 333 have belonged to several different groups of Lodges as the National Office of the Boy Scouts and the Order of the Arrow rearranged their administrative domains over the years.

Also available on this site are documents pertaining to the history of Area and Sections which Kecoughtan Lodge belonged to. I encourage you to view them to get a broad perspective on the history of the Order of the Arrow in Virginia:
Have? - is the patch in my collection?
BDR - emblem border color
E - edge type (usually Rolled or Cut)
BKG - emblem background color
FDL - fleur de-lis
NOAC - National Order of the Arrow Conference

This web site is dedicated to the memory of E. Bailey Tudder, longtime Kecoughtan Lodge Advisor, and Dr. Ron Godby, former 463 Arrowman and co-author of the most comprehensive reference on Lodge 463 emblem issues.
