Computer graphics - where do you get your capbadges from?

#11
A few years ago army.mod.uk used to have a link to images of cap badges. This link has since disappeared. A bit of a search has revealed that the pages still exist, though are now within a press centre part of the site. Unfortunately, it seems that you need permissions to get into it. Surprisingly, the images themselves are accessible via a Google image search, just not the index.

"http://www.army.mod.uk/presscentre/badges/cap_badges/com_serv/c35.html" shows one of the badges, but you can't move further up the address.

I dont understand....

We all have to use cap badge illustrations and logos for office stuff but nobody knows where or if we have a central library? Surely this cant be right?

I have followed the link above but it just gives you a few photo scans of cap badges, not illustrations (drawings).

In 1998 I was given a CD titled the British Army Design Library that had ALL the capbadges on, all the logo's and all the letter templates. It was an official disc that was intended to make sure we all started to use the same graphics for our letter heads etc... It obviously hasnt worked has it.

I am stunned to read that in order to get an illustration we have to "google" it :( Sad times

Yes, the army.mod.uk site used to have both graphic images and photographs - you had to register and wait a couple of days before you were granted access, but they were all there. I presume the files are still in the system somewhere, but the page to access it has disappeared.

The said CD was produced by the DSDA Print Centre in Keynsham near Bristol, Since it has now closed and it's work taken over by private companies I can only assume the MOD is to tight to pay for an updated version.

The 'Army Design Manual' is still around and valid. Most units, training wings etc should have a copy somewhere. The CD with all the electronic data is tucked inside the cover. Have Fun

Just for info purposes, DSDA Keynsham have now moved to bath. 192 should get you the number. colour pics dont really look good on a letter head..... :D

As one of the lucky individuals who works on the Army's content management system for the websites etc I asked this question a while back. I got sent a copy of the 1998 CD that's already been mentioned, the person who sent it promised there is a new version being released shortly. Why not log onto ArmyNet and post about it, hurry them up a little :D
