Hi All,

I have finally completed my gold Duke of Edinburgh award! It's now time to choose whether I'd like the gold brooch or gold badge. Does anyone have any opinions and advice on which one I should get?

Firstly, congratulations on completing Gold!

I'd seriously recommend the brooch over the badge. It's much nicer! The badge is a little lapel pin similar to the ones you get at Bronze and Silver. I guess it depends on whether you want the flashier one or some you could actually wear on a suit/jacket.

I'll find an image of them both side by side and you'll see what I mean

AH this makes my decision tricky. The brooch makes it seem more special, yet the badge completes the bronze and silver set... Tough decision!

Just buy the lapel pin off Ebay, not sure if you'll find the brooch as easily. :')

I did Bronze and Silver via Cadets but sorta hated it so never did Gold... The upper age limit for Gold is 25 so I'm sorta tempted to do it.

Very good point!

It will be worthwhile I'm sure, especially when you're so close already to the full set!
