I heard that the Den Chief can only wear EITHER the Den Chief patch, OR the braid, but not both. Do you know if that is true? Please advise.

@Mickie Hammel The Guide to Awards and Insignia does not specify either way.
I would say yes they can wear both because the patch only shows that they are a den cheif, the cords help represent what kind of den they are over (the Wolf and Bear cords are different than the Webelos cords).
I do know as well that after they have completed the requirements for the Den Cheif Service Award, that they wear both over the left shoulder. This award is challenging to get and at some points, I thought it was harder than my Eagle.

Thank you Joe,
Since writing this we have found instructions to wear the two together in the Den Chief Guide book. I'm glad!
Thanks for your help.

Can a Den Chief from a Venture crew earn the Den Chief Service award?
