I mean it's a buckshee course and not one to be proud of attending or completing, I remember it being 8 weeks in the Siddens before getting smashed on tactics.

It certainly wasn't buckshee when i did mine, quite hard going actually to be fair.

And no, not anyone can wear them. Although i'm not sure why the army is so fascinated with adorning us with badges, flashes, patches and other regalia, we're beginning to look like a paramilitary arm of the boy scout movement. With a bit of luck this will be adjusted with the advent of MTP, but i'm not holding my breath....

I thought this was a thread about 80's deodrant. I was more of a Denim man myself.

Buckshee? Would that be the old Infantry NCOs SAA? Two and half months of Death By TP/BL/BHE? Every lesson from 'Rifle Strengthening Exercises', 'GPMG Further Mech' and SF (yep, it was not a seperate subject yet) to Safety Supervisor Stage 5??

In the day, it was one of THE 5 you needed to get promoted.

Ah right gotcha, so being skillful in handling your weapon "pardon the pun" doesn't give you the right to wear the crossed rifles, what a knobber :?

Like you said woodandy, i thought that was the case.

Yes it did. Same badge. Marksman was left forearm of No 2 dress. SAA was above rank badge on right upper arm on most orders of dress.
