Last week I passed my APWT with a score of 40 with an iron sight, rumour has it that I should now display a badge on my no. 2's to show this. I'd always thought we had to achieve a minimum score for three consecutive years to wear the badge, has this changed? I got a marksman score for two years on the bounce after Phase 1 training, on the third year I was all set for a hat-trick until our SSM called off the night shoot, as everyone had already passed with the day shoot. I was a bit gutted, but soon forgot about it. Ten years on and I hadn't thought about it, until last week when a couple of lads were chatting on the range. Whilst we're on the topic, what does the badge look like and where is it worn? Before anyone has a dig at me for badge hunting, I'm just trying to lessen the amount of port bottles I'll be fined at the upcoming regi dinner for incorrect dress!
