Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    OK, bloody cheeky, but I thought I'd start here.

    We would like some badges for the Bears at Sgt Slingsby and we currently need a SSgt/CSgt in desert.

    Can anyone help from their old needlework collection?

    Thanks, guys.
     
  2. I don't have any rank badges, but I do have a few Formation badges if you're interested. You know how to get hold of me!

    Bears have very short arms, so that could get tricky.
    But thank you - most sincerely, Friend. :wink:

    A quick bump - surely there's a WO out there who has some old SSgt rank badges?

    Anyone got any Union Flags, left shoulder for the use of?

    And does anyone have a children's sized PARA beret that would suit Sgt Hotspur?

    All help appreciated, folks. :wink:
     
  5. Maybe Jimbo Shortt has some spare rank badges
     
  6. Me! I found a few that I haven't managed to bodge onto anything yet. PM me an address and I'll post them tomorrow.

    THank you sluggy. I'll be in your debt forever, and even forgive the things you do to your dog in the name of charity.

    BMG do you want to get those sent directly to me, or do you want them to go via HQ Bears?

    Nice one, Snail!!
    To the QM please.

    [PS - HOTSPUR already has a UJ]
    [PPS - Size 36 Para Beret is a nightmare task!!]
     
  9. It might be a daft suggestion, but I wonder if the people behind Crest Insignia (which pops up as a banner above any Insignia related threads in ARRSE) would very kindly make a donation of said Badges to the Slingsby Cause?

    Just a suggestion...

    Contact established, and Dale has the information needed to get stuff to me.

    Which isn't to say that other people should stop looking for stuff, of course - QM stores are quite capacious!

    3. They're cheap!
    Job jobbed, just checking for sizes. 8)
    Thanks, mate!

    Now, in this modern complicated Army world, where do people wear rank badges? Just on the right arm? Both? On the chest? Or anywhere? :wink:
