Why go online. Why not visit the stores and say

'Could I have some cherry backing for my beret please'.

Much cheaper.
Probably due to the stores not having any cherry backing EVER... last place I saw it, the SQ was using it as a table cover instead of issuing it to those in need. Stores are for storing ;)

Telephone (or visit) a military tailor that makes RAMC mess kit and ask them to send you a piece. With any luck they will send you an off cut for nothing or next to nothing but beware many of these people would sell their own grannies.

What you get behind cherries :)

seriously it is the cherry red backing worn behind the cap badges of those in medical units
Being a spotter its the dull cherry backing worn by RAMC pers below WO1 behind their metal cap badges.

QA's have a scarlet backing behind their badges and and the dental types have green backing. Other people in 'medical units' such as RLC and RAChD don't have backings.

BTB Off the top of my head I think the Vets have vermillion but I could be wrong - I'm sure some one will correct me.

Does anyone know where I can get a cherry backing for my beret on line.
Why didnt you just take the one off your old beret? or was it robbed? highly possible as we are talking RAMC here!

I had the same cherry backing from the day I joined right up until I got my WO1, it had shrunk a fair bit due to trimming off the raggy holes made by my stitching and it used to attract flies. Nice!

Slightly off topic but does any one know why officers (and WO1s) don't have dull cherry backing. It would not be difficult to make the badges in dull cherry. I suspect the reason may be that nobody thought of it at the time but maybe there is another.

Blimey, what the feck has happened to the QM's Store. Don't tell me they have done away with that as well.
Is nothing sacred?
