    Its probably because paras think the only badge worth wearing is wings, why the fcuk would you want to wear a badge just for passing scbc or psbc which are just buckshee courses.
  4. Yes....yes, I'm the real Prince Ablert.....of course I am :roll:

    You need a piercing specialist for that. It doesn't hurt though (just the 1st time you pissh)
  5. I think you answered your own question.
  6. Some people are just badge hunters and will wear all sorts if possible and sometimes even if not possible just to try and look good.
  7. The 'millies'?
  8. Fair one, hadn't seen that before.

    Seems a bit OTT though. I mean, 'Best Unit' award?
  9. I think it depends on the RSMs of battalions. I went through many phases where slight uniform changes were made, badges included.
  10. As far as i know, snipers do wear the crossed rifles "s" badge on there forearm while in no2's dress in the paras. i've seen it a few times. The lack of badges on the uniforms is probably down to the fact that the no2's dress is rarely worn and people cant be arsed too get badges sewn on. i've worn no2's dress twice in 7yrs service....once on my pass out and then again outside the guardroom late on a saturday night for being a naughty boy.

    I knew a para officer who was required to wear SD on one occasion - no idea where it was, thought it might be in the loft somewhere :)
  12. I wore No1s three times, and No2s once. On the 1s only rank badges were permitted, but on the 2s we had to wear everything, including those little drivers wagon wheels if we were qualified.

    I remember I had a colleague who thought he'd see if his NI medal was really made of cardboard. He cut it in half, only to find it was solid metal. He had a show parade a week or so later and borrowed a medal, nicely court mounted, but the BOS knew his medal was just a dangler and checked the name on the rim. New charge - damage of issue kit, huge fine and that many extras the rest of the battalion thought he had become the new groundsman!
  13. You tend to wear No2 quite often in the regular army-funerals (all too often lately) for instance.
