I know i have been out of a mainstream AAC regiment for a long time but how is this possible?

I can cope with a woman pilot in a blue beret but isnt that the Royal Anglian cap badge therefore a MALE only infantry regiment.

Thoughts.....?

To be honest, having an AAC heli pilot that isn't AAC, but wears a smurfy lid still makes my head spin

why? anybody attached to any regiment wears that units beret. surely what should be more head spinning is those who wear a maroon beret but wouldnt fit in plane door or need a cargo parachute!

But why would a Corps have another Corps/Regt doing it's primary job? You don't see Engineers being Doctors, or Signallers taking teeth out

fair one, but i do see non RLC drivers driving, non RSigs using radios, non Paras parachuting etc etc. The AAC is short of pilots, always has been. Now if somebody is good enough to pass aircrew selection but also wants to eventually go beyond commanding an AAC regiment then they may want to revert back to they're old cap badge/trade. (yes i know they are exception to this rule) It has changed alot over recent years as now all NCO pilots transfer to the AAC upon gaining wings so it is only the Officers but if i remember correctly at 4/6 year point they either go back to old unit and don't fly or transfer to the AAC and rebadge. I don't know maybe its a commisioning factor (ie LT bloggs was commisioned originally into RLC before attanding the course. Therefore they are still a commissioned officer in the RLC technically)

But driving, using a radio, cooking (not cheffing), are quite basic soldierly things. I once saw an infantryman do first aid

don't know. untill you suggested it and i googled QOGLR i hadnt seen their badge before so probably right
Unless my eyes decieve me due to grainy picture I'm very sure she's RLC. If it's the girl I think it is, she's very nice and really competant so you've scored there.

(Cue jokes about competant people not 'fitting in' in the RLC...)

I was a Signaller once & I did 'take' a few teeth out.

Ack Adj maybe? Too small to be an RLC badge.

Oddest badge I saw on an AAC lid was that of the A&SH in the '90s. It looked bizarre.

Thats defo RLC. The photos been edited so things are out of proportion. Shes got a massive head, with a small capbadge. The hand holdin the mic is as big as her head. The control stick is the same size as her nose. I wouldnt get away with a big sideburn below my eye. And, that looks like a lynx behind her, so why is her right eye already working independantly.
