The first flap Eswau Huppeday lodge issued for wear on the scout uniform, known as the "black teepee" issue or the "dark teepee". However not many realize that this issue was by several in lodge opinion was not the actual first issue. I personally talked to a lodge member that was inducted into the lodge at the second ordeal and this flap was not the one that was issued to him. The lodge believes this to be a loom variety of the S2, so realistically the S2a should be classified as the S1. But by being in the blue book and oaimages.com as the S1 and by it being such a rare flap it continues to be classified as the S1. This is probably one of the hardest flaps in our lodge to acquire, but isn't the rarest.
