I was looking for a provider of rank slides to see if I could get them cheaper than the Corps Museum and I ended up looking at a US website as you do. I was struck by this statement: *** Please note that we have been selling MultiCamâ¢ tapes to paintball members for many years before the U.S. Army decided to make this their official new uniform. Also note that the official thread colors have not yet been decided on for U.S. Army use. So, do not order these items for active duty personnel in preparation for the new uniform, as they will be wrong. We will update everything when the information becomes available and when it has approved. *** I cannot imagine anyone in the British Army ever even considering the colour of the thread used on a rank slide. I find it hard to imagine that anyone else is going to spend time squinting at rank badges to make see what shade it is.
