Commando Dagger Badge Award

#3
I am sorry, that is absolute bolloxs.

The dagger is for successful completion of the commando course.

That is a stupid story made up by the press.

My opinion based on experience.

The whole story sucks

Tanx Ex Marine.  I thought there was no such thing as a Commando Dagger Award.  I'm hoping this is not another 'Walter Mitty' type squaddie, who now goes home on leave sporting the dagger on his arm !

Well if a bint can pass the Cdo course why not hand the dagger out to all and sundry ;)




Where's that can of worms gone I'm sure I put it down here somewhere. ;D

then it is not surprissing that Exmarine has no experience of such award. Unquote.

Are you f###king stupid.

I was also on the AACC trg Team

As for the Bint getting it, good effort.........oh by the way she is an Army Capt.........and she had to do the course and not a freebee which is not possible in Corps logic.

Actually I have just sussed it.

The Unit was given a commando dagger on a plaque to form an association and thanks for its combined effort.

I will say again in plain English...........there is no way you can wear a Cdo dagger without passing the course the same as you cannot wack up any other badge without completing the course

Well it was nice to see the Doris had about twenty attempts at it and came back to 'do the bits she wasnt too good at'.

Exmarine, you have gone down in my estimation by revealing you were on the AACC trg team. I now place you lower than a low thing. Irrelevant.

You should ask the people I trained rather than make chippy statements which are beneath contempt.

I did all the speed marches and 30 milers with all the courses, with all kit, and had a great time being paid to keep fit.

The lads respected me which is important, not what a cyber geek with a poncy C/S thinks.

Yes she was wheeled around until she passed...not happy with that.

No.  Are you ?

All I have done is given quotes from other sources,   apart from the first post in this thread where I put what I thought was the correct answer.

This does not mean that I in anyway agree with anyone wearing any badge that they are not entitled to wear if they have not done the course and/or earnt it.

If you take my whole sentence in it's full context i.e.

As It was thought to be first time an army unit had received such recognition then it is not surprising that Exmarine has no experience of such award.
what I was actually getting at was the fact that You are EXMARINE and this is THE FIRST TIME an army unit had received such recognition then I would not expect you to be aware of any such award, unless of course you are TOP MAN in the RM and therefore make the decisions ?

just one more quote for you from Blackcats link

It's quite an honour. There's a lot of history behind it and I think we're getting the respect of the marines and that means a lot. I think the boys are going to sew it on straight away.
So I take then EXMarine that they are all off to sew on a wooden plaque !

Ditto, been there, done tha....... but have moved on somewhat!

Ooh, you are harsh! Don't think I fit the bill of cyber geek! You may think my C/S is poncy but advertising that your an exmarine is tres sad, in my humble opinion! 8) ;D ;)

Reference been there seen it done it.... Unquote

That I do not know of, I will take your word, but you do sound like a brown hatter Flashy old boy.

Oh and I have moved on, quite considerably and that I do not advertise.

That Team experience was in 86/87 probably when you were at school.

As for the Exmarine C/S I thought it rather appropriate, a bit like exdriver, expara, etc C/S are meant to identify, and as most of my posts are related to RM subjects I think it helps that it is not excoalminer, talking about the Cdo Course.

Using it I knew I would open myself to jumped up as#holes like you with a chip on their shoulder.

So when did you attempt the course.

As I said C/S are meant to identify and you do sound like a ponce.

As per usual I answered this thread to clear up a point and the sad bastards want a dig…..feel free it is the NAFFI.

This is the quote from the newspaper, I see no reference to sewing a badge on:

Members of the regiment were rewarded for their efforts in destroying more than 20 Iraqi tanks by being presented with the Commando dagger by the Royal Marines.

Like I said, a plaque.

Like I said these are only quotes from other sources but the QDG link said

" It's quite an honour. There's a lot of history behind it and I think we're getting the respect of the marines and that means a lot. I think the boys are going to sew it on straight away. "

Now either they have got the wrong impression of what the award is or you have.  Maybe if there are any QDG who have been given this award and are members of this site they can enlighten us.
