Crossed Rifles

#4
I have seen some AGC types with crossed rifles on their rank slides - overlapping the stripes.

Sadly, I have no idea where they got them from.

In most circumstances, there isnt much need to wear them with your 95s. Just make sure the badge is on your 1s and 2s then people can see when the time matters.

Try:

Lancashire Embroidery & Insignia Ltd
Knowsley Industrial Park North
Kirkby
Liverpool
L33 7SA

Tel: 0151-546 5161
Fax: 0151-540 1128

I've been getting various items from them for the last 20, or so, years. Good turn around time and better than the crap sold by many PRIs

Probably for the same reason that you feel you need to let everyone else know your welsh. If you don't have anything good to say, shut your face.

Saw in an army surplus store in Croydon:

Crossed Cannons, surmounted by a large Crown, black embroidered on a OG slide?

What is that? Battery Seargeant Major equivalent (WO11)? or some sort of Artillery instructor?

That is a bit unnecessary Ginger Boy.

SAA badges should not be worn on CS 95 - that is why they are not issued for CS 95 on rank slides.

Assuming this is not a wah...

It is the badge of a SMIG (Sergeant Major Instructor of Gunnery)
