ACF Brassard question

#1
A sensible post for once

Unteroffizer Polar69 jnr got his 1 star badge this week and on interrogation displayed vague notions of where it should go on his brassard

So where does it go, is it along the bottom next to his SAS snipers badge ?

If he has his 1 star badge, then he should have been told by his AI's where its goes, its in the book...get him to look it up

It is indeed in the book.

However, sniper badge on the lower left (as you look at the brassard) and star badge on the lower right. Both badges whould be cut by the crease (if his unit goes for the three crease approach).

Not a million miles from me, but still a different county so couldn't really comment. Do they have three creases down the brassard (ie. fold in half & press it, then fold the outer sides into the middle and press again. This leaves you with a three sided box type effect).

Have a look at this, http://www.nacf.org.uk/county_hq/id48.htm it'll give you a good idea where badges should go.

Don't read too much of the RSM's page. He seems to be a little (ahem) eccentric in some of his views (and spelling).

hi polar,
just found an old copy of the cadet training manual from my cadet days

chp 3 sec 2 para3 covers the position of badges

it makes me feel old reading it, the pictures still depict a cadet doing drill with 303 and wearing 37 patt webbing

hope this helps

You need to put a URL of the picture in betweent he img tags and not a file extension from your computer. You can upload it somewhere such as tinypic and then do the same as above with the URL.

As Harry says the badge should go to the right of the brassard with the 'sas sniper badge' to the left. However, should he get any more badges then the APC badge must be moved so that it is at the top right (ALWAYS) with the other badges (there is a max of 4) should then be sewn top left, bottom right and then bottom right respectively (square type formation).

I did read it, and as there is NO WO1's in the ACF and NO RSM's only RSMI's he needs to get out more, now if he can hit me over the head with his ACF issued Warrant I will gladly cut away and burn my (regular) one..

Actually (& I've never met the chap), he seems to be the type of character who gets us such a bad name in certain quarters. His dress photos don't stand up to close scrutiny either (check the photo of the Cadet RSM)

As i said in my previous post, he might be a nice guy and he might do a lot for his ACF, but, hes not a serving RSM, having read some of the letters hes put out, his County Comdt needs to knock his door and tell him to wind his neck in, NACF isnt a Regular/TA unit, ITS THE CADETS!!!!! THEY ARE NOT IN THE ARMY!!!!

Is that loud enough?

Rant over

would you Believe it Harry, i have just twigged , i HAVE met this RSM guy on my PR course last weekend http://www.nacf.org.uk/county_hq/rsm.htm
he is as you say quite "eccentric" he does take himself too seriously , he wears a Jumper, No2 trousers, RSM cap (Brown), shiney shoes, RSM badge right sleeve and a Northumbria flash on his left arm.
a little posey if you ask me.

while we are all wearing C95s except for 2 colonels in jumpers.
i must admit i haven't spoken to him at length but he does give me the impression that he is a little up himself a bit. whereas most of us on the course TA/Reg?ACF got on quite well and are quite relaxed for most parts, however a point in his favour is that he does take part in the team exercises and tasks.

Was he wearing ACF titles on his jumper? or was it another case of 'oh yeah i do normally wear them, just seem to have forgotten to put them on again'

God forbid..he wasnt trying to give the impression he is a real RSM, Regular, TA or otherwise...nahhh.. Im sure he tells everyone hes actually in the ACF (cough, bollicks)
