High Sheriff badge placement

#1
My son has just been appointed the High Sheriff cadet for this year, where would he put the badge on his brassard? I cannot seem to find any info on this. Would he need a second brassard?

Can we have some photo's of rusty sherrif's badges...........?
Sure, assuming you want to be ROP'd into submission that is.

Tormenting the usual bellwhifs I can tolerate, but this looks a genuine question so play nicely ladies.

Never heard of it, but if as sounds is an annual thing, where did last year's place theirs?

Is the badge a heart pierced by a spoon?

Lol,

I did check the badge, but can't see any hearts or spoons, however there are a couple of a***holes and pointy heads with incredibly small penis's coming out of them! The High Sheriff badge has obviously changed since you girls were appointed:scratch:

Thanks "woopert" you are right, it was actually a serious question, however now that we have descended into the realms of primary school conversation, I've got 2 more days off before I have to go back to work, so we can carry on this highly informative discussion in the hope that I might actually get a serious reply.:)

My own thoughts precisely.
Since they make/supply the apprpriate badges, they may be able to help:

E.C.Snaith and Son Ltd - High Sheriffs Cadet-Dyfed Badge

Thanks Guys,

unfortunately the last time a cadet recieved this appointment in this county was about 10 years ago and nobody at Coy or HQ level seems to know anything, but I appreciate your help. I will contact E.C Snaith.

Thanks for your help.

I think that your best bet would be to ask at your county HQ as this is not a run of the mill ACF qualification, also there is a relative degree of autonomy between counties with regard to dress regs on brassards and placing of badges. It is also worth bearing in mind that with the new PCS uniform about to be rolled out to cadets (supposedly anyway) some counties are talking about doing away with brassards altogether so it may be worth finding out if this is going to be the case for your son and perhaps waiting for a while before placing the badge on the uniform.

I am guessing this is the Welsh equivalent of the Lord Lieutents badge up here in Sconnie Botchland? If so this is a great achievement so well done to the lad!

As for position, I am pretty sure it goes to the front of the brassard, below any rank badge. So, when facing your son, you should see the badge first, with the First aid badge to the read of the brassard...but double check that!

Someone at your sons county HQ should be making a decision on this then, or speaking to someone who can, as I said there is a degree of autonomy permitted, especially given the timescale of last issue and rarity of the qualification.

Thanks,

As far as I know the cadets here in taffland will probably get their new PCS next year, so the appointment will have finished by then, although I am not sure if he can still wear it afterwards.

The High Sheriff appointment here in Wales is a seperate appointment to the Lord Lieutenants, but even so it is still a great achievement, especially as the Lord Lieutenant's appointment was also to another cadet from his Coy.

Thanks for all your help, when I find out the definitive answer from the brass hats, I will post it here.

kind regards

Well done to the youngster - a good effort - a very good effort. Be proud and ignore the lame-brain twerps.

PS: I think it should be worn where the Royal Marines' King's Badge Men wear theirs: high on the left arm where the commando badge is worn.

Here is a pic of the badge, as you can see it is quite large and will not fit under his rank badge, which was why I was wondering if it should go on a second brassard above the national colours badge?
