Unique in the British Army in that all NCOs wear a crown above their stripes, a throwback from the days when they would escort the 'Widow at Windsor'. To distinguish Sgts (three stripes AND a crown remember) from SSgts, the Staffies get to wear FOUR stripes and a crown.

Oh and their stable belt is red, gold and green, making them possibly the only Rastafarian unit in the world.
