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. Guys,

    Pardon a mere Brit stepping on your turf, but I am in a quandary.

    My niece is married to a guy who is a former US Army MP Sergeant. His greatest jealousy is that all us Brit ex-soldier wear blazers with regimental and/or corps badges. Does ANYONE know where I could get him a US MP Badge so he can join the club? I, and I know he, would be truly grateful.

    I'm poppingthis on the Brit Forums as well just in case we have a hidden genius who knows things.

    Here are the two important US Military Police 'badges' that one could have made into a blazer badge. The first one is the 'Coat of Arms' and the second is the Regimental crest of the MP Corps.

  3. Prince and Trip ... Many thanks! I guess either the Coat of Arms or the Regimental Crest will make Joe a happy man .... if I follow Prince's useful link!

    This is not exatcly the case Dogface! I belong to three veterans associations that prescribe a 'dress uniform.' In the case of the Special Forces Association, it is the Green Beret w/ SFA Flash, Regimental tie, White dress shirt, Rifle Green Blazer w/ Special Forces Assn. Blazer badge, Grey or black trousers, black socks and shoes. The Korean War Ranger Association (RICA) prescribes a Black Beret with Metal Para wings w/ background with the Ranger Tab over the wings, White dress shirt with (RICA Tie) Black or Blue Blazer w/RICA Blazer patch on breast, Grey or Black trousers, black shoes & socks.

    The 1st Cavalry Division Association has pretty much the same as the RICA Assn.; however they wear a Stetson with Yellow (EM) or Gold & Black braid (Off.) on it. The tie is gold and black and they wear the 1st Cavalry Division or Regimental Crest on the breast as a blazer badge.

    Most posts of the VFW and the American Legion also have a prescribed dress uniform that fits much of what I have already mentioned with the Black or Blue Blazer, white dress shirt and grey pants, etc. They wear their VFH and/or Legion 'Overseas hats,' with that uniform. In most cases in all the organizations, mini-medals, mini-qualification badges are worn on the left lapel like a mess dress uniform.

    On events where a dress uniform isn't called for such as picnics, informal events many then do wear baseball hats with their associations embelems, qualification badges Para wings, CIB along with t-shirts, polo shirts and jackets with their associations logos on them.
