Help with uniform

#1
I've just been issued my fist lot of kit - most of which looks like it was designed to fit Mr Blobby! I need some help with getting ready for my first time at the unit tommorrow night:

I am a Padre posted to a RAMC unit. I have been given what I was told was a brigade insignia (medical Corps badge) and sew on union jack. Which sleeve do i put them on, and do I put them on both shirt and jacket?

I'm sitting here with a wet beret on my head and a needle and thread waiting for your answers!

Thanks - I'll just start unpicking the bit I'd started! I thought I heard a sergent say the brigade badge wne tunder the union flag. Bugger

RPGTabs,

Take your uniform along to the next drill night and ask for a word with the Sergeant Major.

Take some chalk or similar to mark the exact locations if he cannot provide you with a page of regulations.

Your the Padre if the SSM has a problem tell him to get onto your Boss! Am sure the Big Guy will set him straight

Not a bad first effort. My experience of padres was soured when mine took my 2ic's "Help yourself to hobnobs" a bit too literally whilst on ex.

I came on shift to an ashen faced L/Cpl X who had managed to safe me one!!

Grrr, made sure my det wasn't too welcoming for the pardre after that.

Ok so it won't ever be serialised in the Daily Mail but it's my padre related storey and I was *very* bitter about it.

Perhaps I should get some counselling...?

See the Padre. He'll sort you out, with a cup of tea and maybe a biscuit ....

well, I think I got all of this year's 'too big.' If there are any fat b*****ds out there who need to swap... Is that earthy enough?
You're learning fast Padre. If I was still serving you could sup at my BV anytime mate :D

In fact - I might even enjoy a drumhead service as long as I didn't have to pump your organ ;)
