Just a thought on the SAS badge

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Aphrodite_Squaddie, Jun 7, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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

    hooped. mk
  2. While your at it why not re-design all the other cap badges too?

    Another one for the hole?
  3. 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.
  4. I don't think crabmabb was being serious!

    Oh and mentioning "Greek theme" in the naafi is only going to go one way!
  5. The Sigs could have that as well :lol:
  6. That is latin, not greek and what dog do you wish to purchase
  7. [In fact the Romans thought of anal sex as something particularly "Greek"]

    Wiki disagrees with you! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_sex

    And it's ok thanks, you weren't in so I got a dog from somewhere else :wink:
  8. Hey homo, not me pal. Dirrrrrty Bstard. When dya pose for that one then??

    My cap badge has Herpes on it.
  10. I thought I had herpes once! The doctor told me it was hermes! Apparently I was just a carrier.

    Thank you, I'm here all week.

  11. Damocles is correct, rather than Excalibur. My mate Henno McGarvey (who was second man into the Embassy) told me.
  12. 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!!!!!
  13. Is it a rusty sherriff's badge?
  14. I thought it was Mr D's sword?
  15. The signals, The crabs and half the RLC should wear the RE capbadge, to remind them were they came from!
