DO THE REME WEAR NAME TAGS ?

#1
Sorry might sound like a silly question but do they im currently transfering from the TA to the REME regulars.
 
#2
Only the ones with incredibly hard to spell names or Jones' with the last 3 on the end to tell 'em apart.





Oh, and knobbers.........................
 
#3

99% of the british army dont wear name tags - its an individual; thing - you wanna wear 'em, wear 'em, if not, dont bother - no-one will make you put them on and I doubt that anyone will make you take 'em off if you do wear 'em.............

Why the question?

If you have some from the TA fetch them with you and get them on your kit if required. If this isn't the reason for the question what is it?

Some Regiments do (Sigs, some RA ,some INF and some RAC) just depends on the CO really. Regardless, if the Regt do, so do the REME. Unless your a PULHEEM pushing rebel!

Permanent staff wear them @ ATR(P), so the recruits know who just shouted @ them!

Years and years and years ago when I was in F ing B we were told to put name tags on our nice new wooly pullys, all went well till the next wksp parade (about the only time we wore barrack dress) when the RSM (ex Para) noticed a rechy mech with his name tag upside down, the reason, SO HE COULD READ IT HIMSELF. Almost p****d myself laughing.

I'm at one of the battalions and we are issued with name tags which we will wear. There is no reason given or implied, it's just a matter of you will wear it.

all depends on how keen you are. I wear em because I was keen, but now not keen enough to take them off. Also i agree with the wearing of anything that singles me out as reme (hammer+tongs, epaulette badges ect), just incase anyone dares to mistake me for any other corps or regt, suppose there is a bit of keeness left in me after all.

During my time at PMC in the 80's nametags were compulsory, as they were in my subsequent time in Germany with 1 AAC. This was a 1 UK Armd Div thing.

I see nothing wrong with them myself.
 
#17
Everyone should have name tags - can stop your kit from being nicked........................ and i can make them for €0.50 each!!!!!! :D
 
#18
Don't wear them if no one else is, it will single you out for all the sh t jobs going, it's much easier to jiff someone with their name up than not. You may think it looks good but you may live to regret it!

Unless your in 35 Engineer Regiment where the CO and RSM force people to buy them, and seniors AGAI you if you don't.

How can someone AGAI you for refusing to buy uniform? It would be interesting to see if there is a reference somewhere. JSPs etc. At the risk of opening a seperate debate, embellishments are uniform (or an enhancement to uniform). If there is a requirement to wear nametags then they should be provided at expence other than your own pocket.
