Certainly not policy in my corps (Sigs) to wear black arm bands.
I've been to 3 mil funerals mate and haven't worn one yet.
I've seen Royal Marines at mil funerals and they black out the second from the top button of the jacket with black cloth but again, no armband.
Your Corps/Regt dress policies should give details or ask your razzer.
You are required to attend the re-education camp for your woeful lack of knowledge and disrespect to others in our all inclusive multi cultural multi faith society.Yes AllenFTM believe your right, about right arm. Said good buy to a friend in Battalion January and am saying good buy to another Tuesday coming, I took off the post I had on as I realised I am about six years out of step with the question and the deceased might well have had his/her burial by now with or without arm bands. Egg Banjo really not sure about the left arm nearer to the heart but the black is a traditional colour for morning.

Military cuddly toys are to be placed according to order of regimental precedence.
