Just a thought on the SAS badge

#1
The SAS cap badge should not have the sword of ********* but in my opinion the sword of DAMOCLES. Signifying the imminent danger to anyone whom the regiment pursue. The reg was and is one of the strongest the British Army have. If you look up Damocles it seems to me to be more fitting to the reg.

As I say it is JUST a thought

I said was just a thought. But the PTI badge could have Hermes on it. Lets carry on with the Greek theme. There are probably many more we could go with.

I don't think crabmabb was being serious!

Oh and mentioning "Greek theme" in the naafi is only going to go one way!

Damocles is correct, rather than Excalibur. My mate Henno McGarvey (who was second man into the Embassy) told me.

Hermes and Mercury are the same (demi) god, one is Greek the other Roman.

The original designers of the capbadge should be sought for the true meaning of the design... and fast!!!!

As for changing it, why? The capbadge doesn't have to match the regiments current role, if it was Excalibre in the desert it sitll is.

Otherwise the RTR need a rethink!!!!!

Perish the thought! If God intended the Army to fly, He'd have made the sky green.

Ahhhh, see how it goes now!!! Hate the crabs until it looks like you might be getting lumped with it!! On the brightside, a lot more hotels going to be utilised.
There has been rumours and whispers for months about navy wanting to take over all rotary assets bar apache, and handing fixed wing to the army for what would essentially be a disbandment of the air farce. Tim collins gave quite a controvercial statement about his views a few months back. Ruffled a lot of crab feathers!
We're moving into a more "army" orientated expedetionary role at the minute and personally can't help thinking its for a long term aganda.

Nah, I heard the Army would get the strike assets (seeing as the Navy don't fight anymore) and the Navy would get the strategic Transport, seeing as that is all they do now, transport the boys to the fighting.
