does anybody know why the 9/12 wear a cloth cap badge?

they had to stop using the metal ones because they kept melting them down for scap and using the money to feed their crystal meth addiction

I remember asking a 14/20th in the ´70´s,about his cloth capbadge,he replied that the plastic ones broke too easily(plastic,how cheap can you get?)when sat upon;The vision of `Skipping Chickens`sitting on each others faces just doesn´t bear thinking about! :twisted:

The reason why 9/12L have cloth cap badges is so that you muppets can get confused and keep saluting us. Also the lances kept bending and the it was either gives us cloth cap badges or disband the RA. So they went for the cap badges and the Army lost out!

The CO made them change to cloth badges coz he was sick of the metal lances on the SNCO's berets poking him in the Arrse when they were licking it.
