Commisioning of an INT CORPS print?

#1
Im not sure if one of these exists or has been suggested previously, if so I would be interested if it has.

Many Corps and Regts have a number of prints that either depict a specific action/event involving their organisation or an individual.

I think its high time that this applied to our own glorious Corps! At the very least we could begin to discuss the idea to get the ball rolling...

1. Are their any specific events/individuals that epitomise the VaS of the Corps?

2. Does any Campaign stand out for a specific attention (WW2, NI, Op TELIC/HERRICK etc..)

3. The print should be as general as possible in terms of 'tradecraft' depicting what would now be deemed as 'OPMI' - - or conversly should a specific field of expertise be depicted?

Anyway - over to you - - PS I know this thread would be easy to hi-jack by the 'Lets have a fat Int Corps bloke doing some filing print' vein of thought, but could we have a few sensible suggestions first! :p

I wouild suggest a montage showing all the roles over the years rather than the 'fat clerk doing some filing or the fat officer pointing at a map'

(Then as you are an offshoot of CMP a nice red cap in the middle of it)

Maybe have a transferee shaking his/her head as a couple of DE soldiers get tangled up in a camnet?

Are you looking for that thing to propel you forward and raise your profile?? Joking aside, sounds like a great idea to me.

Or the DE soldiers laughing at their transferees standard of service writing.........

Nice idea but if only you could understand the pain involved (having been on the margins of the planned Op BANNER painting). Evryone will have a better idea, or want to exaggerate their bit of the Corps. I suggest a black canvass that can be interpreted in anyway by any viewer and its nicely avant garde.

Green surely. Best idea so far mind.

Sounds very 80's. Like all those awful prints you see of some exercise in Germany, all puttees, SLRs and Chieftans.

Mind you:

The hours approaching, to give it your best
You've got to reach your prime.
That’s when you need to put yourself to the test
And show us a passage of time
Were going to need a montage (montage)
Ooh it takes a montage (montage)

Sure a lot of things happing at once,
Remind everyone what’s going on (what’s going on)
And when every shot you show a little improvement
Just show it all or it will take to long
That’s called a montage (montage)
Ooh we want montage (montage)

And anything that we want to know
From just a beginner to a pro,
You want a montage (montage)
Even rocky had a montage (montage)

(Montage...montage)

Anything that we want to know
From just a beginner to a pro,
You need a montage (montage)
Ooh it takes a montage (montage)

Always fade out in a montage,
If you fade out
It seem like more time has passed in a montage
Montage

Not one of you lot, but has anyone tried arthur3bums. He did one for the REME.

Why don't we commission the lot that did the Olympics logo - no tired old montages with puttees and Chieftains there and nobody would be able to work out from it what the fcuk it was supposed to represent - seems pretty apt really - let's just avoid spunking £400 000 on it though.

As pointed out, if you want something this guy may be of help and has just done a 90th Aniv print for the Battle of Cambrai. Check this

Ironically, that would have been a lot funnier if you hadn't missed out the apostrophe in the word "transferees". In fact, it would still be grammatically correct if you put one after the word "soldiers" too.

In terms of Values and Standards, I'm not quite sure how you would capture on canvas, someone in the act of bubbling somone else to the CoC instead of having a quiet word in their ear?

It used to be all the rage 2 decades ago, but now seems to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance.

When I was a lad a swift smack in the ear was considered by those in the know the best way to educate an erring JNCO. My Corps skills improved no end but my hearing is shot to feck.

That would be counter-productive for a darksider, so the prefered method of re-education was to send the miscreant for a couple of laps of the tech block with a wombat shell above his* head.

Unfortunately, all of the wombat shells were sold off as part of SDR.

*for some reason, this punishment was reserved for male soldiers only.
