Acf marksmanship quals

Discussion in 'ACF' started by Watcher, Nov 9, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone explain the marksmanship qualifications open to cadets please.


  2. It's a kind of 2 part system.

    There are 6 badges in total which are worn in a pair.

    First - the type of weapon:
    • No. 8 .22 Rifle
    • L98A2 Cadet GP Rifle
    • L81A2 Cadet Target Rifle

    Second - the standard fired:
    • Pass
    • 1st Class
    • Marksman

    I'm not sure on the scoring criteria of each standard, but basically you wear the standard then the weapon next to it.

    In my unit you can only wear 1 pair and it goes in standard-priority - so you wear the weapon badge of your best score (thus, if you're a L98 marksman but only a L81 pass, you wear the Marksman and L98 badges). Other units seem to vary though, I've seen cadets wearing multiples of each and second brassards to fit them and all sorts.
  3. Thanks appreciate your help.
