anyone know what those arm patches on the paras + RM are?

Are they Glint tape (Black to the naked eye but glow under IR illumination) or are the just reflective strips like on a florecent vest?
 
I heard that their issued, i think its just that, IR Glint Tape, more than likely for IFF at night as you would imagine.

i thought that but then i saw this pic which made me think its just that stuff from florecent jackets, now i have glint tape and its black and doesn't reflect white light like this

There are two types,

Visable light (silver)
and
IR (black)

the black stuff is like rocking horseshit to get hold of

It was a rhetorical question. I could not believe such a conversation would take place otherwise.
Ok now I'm really confussed :?
 
If you were a "real" soldier then you would know everything instantly, off by heart. Even if you have never come across it before.

Only cadets have to ask about new kit and equipment. Don't you get it beamed directly in to your head by the the QM?
