The three 1978 patches form a three patch set (actually one patch and two strips). Ed Dworak writes the following about the three patches:

"This is what I know about the three 1978 patches. I will refer to them as top, bottom and middle. The middle patch (World of Scouting) was a generic patch issued by 'National' and sold to every council that wanted to purchase it. The bottom patch (Camptivities) was an activities patch offered and sold by National from a long list of activity patches. This could have been a 'custom' patch ordered by GWC but I have no way of knowing for sure. The top patch (GWC BSA) was a 'custom' patch ordered by GWC. Think of the middle patch as a standard issue GWC 3-inch round patch and the top and bottom patches as 'rockers.' You couldn't wear the 'rockers' without the middle 'anchor' patch. Additional activity patches could be added at the bottom of the stack. I believe the middle patch was used for a few years but don't know if GWC issued more of the 'bottom' type activity patches."
