Garrison Tailors - YOU HAVE TO PAY!

#1
Just been down to the tailors to get some shirts and jackets have the badges put on and we now have to pay for the service. $2.50 per badge! The reason being that the army cant afford to pay for the service anymore.

Maybe Ive got a bee in my bonnet but what an absolute joke. We can afford to send jets on 6,000 mile round trips to libya but not for soldiers uniforms to have the correct badges on.

Now I know I could sew them myself but I still need to get the badges in the first place which will cost me.

Yep, we were told that too. TRFs not issued and to be bought by the soldier, therefore the soldier must pay for them to be sewn to the uniform as they are not issued despite it being in Corps dress regs. Similar to the Corps instruction that medals are to be court mounted. However, court mounting is at soldier's expense.

TRF's, Mech Flashes and Name Tapes.

All at soldiers expense now.

Funny that this has happened at the same time we are going to Velcro. You will only need to get a couple of sets of Badges done then just change them between tops, like you have to do with you issue rank slides.

Just don't buy them and then you don't have to pay to sew them on. All you have to say when you are picked up on parade is "not issued". Of course they will try and make you regret it but I'm sure there'll be a sharp 'about turn' once the papers get hold of the story.

Everybody has the right to put what they want on here, Some one else might want to know. JUST BECAUSE YOU COULD NOT GIVE A SIHT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO SAY SO.

If you dont want to know just dont read that thread.

I've never had the garrison tailor sew on a TRF, Bde flash or TRF because they usually do a gash job at it but I give a shit its the principle of it. The CoC are telling us to get this shite on our kit then they should pay for it!

Don't read the thread? Have a word with yourself you ****. How the **** are people meant to find out what you moaning face arse wipes are clogging the site up with if they don't read the ******* thread?
There is a thread about the air line in Blanford. I know I dont give a shit so I have no opened it *********

I heard that some one put a bill in for tailoring for £40000 so the army said do one. I'm not sure if this is true or who it was. But I need a shite so I'm no going to research it.

Honestly, what do you get out of a response like that? Does it feel empowering or do you honestly think that that is a decent way to talk to people??

Rizzle - QM 4 Bn has this in hand and has approached Div & Bde about the problem but don't expect an answer before you get back from PT. Also, by the time you do, 12 Bde will be switching to MTP and velcro so whilst I understand your predicament, it shouldn't be too bad.

On a personal note, I find it strangely calming to stitch mine on myself. Horses for courses I guess....

Im biting the bullet and paying $15 for my deserts to have badges put on for PT's. And yes just found out today about the MTP.

Still though, just felt like a little internet rant.
