Unlikely to be an inverted pic as capbadge is in correct position.

Most likely they have the Cdo Bde flash on the other arm and ours wouldn't fit. See 7 AA Bn for a 'we don't need no stinking badges' example, Right arm, REME TRF, 7 Bn DZ Flash, ISAF badge and any para wings worn, badges were literally below the elbow on some people.

Worlds gone badge crazy

OK, I have to ask, why are the REME commando ninjas wearing their TRFs on their left arm?
They shouldnt be...not seen the pics yet will take a look next week.........if it isnt a picture error they should still have dettol badge, brigade flash and union flag left arm and wings, TRF and unit flash on right arm.............I even had a full screw with all of them who had his PTI badge on aswell...looked like a scouts shirt.

Right arm
Glint tape
Trf
Isaf

Left
Glint tape
Union flag (I know I know)
Cdo bde flash

Army commando and para qual badges go where they normally go and that is current theatre policy.

Maybe the pic is inverted used to happen alot in the old film days no real excuse now though
As drifter said not inverted as their IWs are in the right shoulder. Even if they have moved it onto the left because of the bde flash it's still on wrong, blue on the right instead of the left.

In the days of MTP, Mk 7s, Acogs, LLMs, 2 blokes in berets (blacked out cap badges circa 1982) and C95 is a pretty outdated recruiting attempt.

The badges are in the right place and the correct way round as per 3 Cdo Bde instruction.

It was pushed through and cleared with REME top brass as guys in Bde that have wings and a dagger end up with one sleeve like a scouts arm, so they spread it evenly over both arms:) every REME in Bde has the badges like this even if they have no wings/dagger.

The picture has not been reversed or had any other alteration done to it...i know coz i took it!

To put this thread at rest, 3 CDO Brigade SO's require the REME Flash on the Left arm with red facing forward, which is how it's on the right arm anyway. No Union Jack is to be worn. No glint tape or ISAF badges. And if you have Crossed Swords on too, your a bigger HAT that the rest!

**** pic though.

The concept of the pic is nicked from an old recruitment poster for RM Cdo.
AND
Because It's been done a million times; Attatched, wannabe, add on blokes who have forsaken turning spanners to pretend they are ally get to get their perfectly ironed C95 shirts pictured in the crafty in a river in Kent with their TRF's relegated to their wrong arms as all the other badges are Much more important than ours.
How tactical is that? Nice cam/firing position/arc cover btw bellends. Oh, and where are you supposed to be?
They certainly had me quaking in my boots.
I hope they get ridiculed and crated accordingly, then posted to an armoured unit with a fooking toolbox.
REMF pricks.

Haha now this is a FLASH if I ever saw one, mission successful! Now to reel the craphat in.

I sense a mass amount of jealousy from your corner, can't let the little green-eyed monster get the better of you.

As with this "forsaken turning spanners", you need to get out more! Sounds like we've upset the toolbox god! Pretty sure the majority of the REME are either tracksuit soldiers, Tiffy's and above, or as you say "wannabes"; who actually want to do something that's not as monotonous as spanner w4nking.

Now, if you knew your history, you would also know that the REME used to wear the TRF on BOTH arms. 3 CDO BDE SO's require that we wear our TRF on the right as the BDE flash is quite large. And in all honesty, I'd rather wear a dagger or wings than the Romanian flag anyway.

This is the best bit though, signs of jealousy and life unfulfillment. It is a picture to recruit REME tradesman to join the Commando Brigade, not an advert for the bloody SBS! So you just lost all military kudos by saying nice cam/fire positions/arc cover, you sound like your in the Army! No wonder we had you quaking in your boots, let me guess, pussers boots? Harry.

And to finish it all off, yes we got crated and a bit of banter was slung to and fro, but posting to armoured? Come on now, behave! What's with the REMF statement?? Pot/kettle??

I eagerly await your next Flash back of Hattitude :).

That one always used to get me on my first trip out there, especially as we were working with Romanians at the end of the tour, and they wore the same or similar DPM to ours.
You couldn't be sure who they were when you saw them until they opened their gobs (and even then you still weren't sure in some cases....)

Anyway, back on topic, I believe the reason is due to having to wear the ISAF badge on the right arm, which itself is quite large. I've seen phots and telly footage of my old lot, including the CO, and it puzzled me as well.

Would it be too much to ask for a picture?

Get over yourself. Just because you want to be a booties wanksock and mince about in rivers don't expect the remainder of our Corps to crack out a stiffy every time they see your ugly ******* grid with an AGC beret perched on top of it.

I bet you've even started calling brews "wets", the cookhouse "galley" and your window a "porthole". Go out for a run ashore, find some hoofing slapper and get yourself laid before you **** your needle-dick into a point whilst looking at images of chad tats on facebook.
And we have another one!

Hello contestant number two! What's your name and where do you come from?!

Look at you posting all these fancy words you know, now if that's not jealousy, I don't know what is! I see your post is very sexually orientated.. Get out much?

REME CDO NINJA OUT.
