I have just been promoted from WO2 to WO1. I should add that I am in a CCF Contingent not ACF, but I am an ex WO2, proud of being very, very Regimental indeed. When I have said jump people have jumped. The CCF Contingent CO has insisted that not only do I wear number 1 dress gold wire on scarlet WO1 badges on my number 2 service dress but he further insists on me wearing a pair of gold wire on scarlet number 1 dress cross flag recruiters badges but with the crowns missing. Aparantly at this school the WO1's previous have worn them but I think I will look a dick. I have contacted the Regiment we are affiliated to who say that they have heard of this before and although uncommon they do not have an issue just as long as I dont try to pass myself of as a recruiter. As a WO the first person that takes the pee in front of me....well lets just say his feet won't touch. I am not a walt or anything like that, I have done several tours and parades but I still remain concerned about the cross flag jobbies. Also, at this particular contingent they also use this cross flag recruiters badge (but minus the crown) for their banner party. Now, whilst in the Army I have always followed dress regs. What do you the audience think???
