Rifles Hat Help

Discussion in 'Officers' started by Harry Paget Flashman, Sep 15, 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. My good lady wife (ACF Officer) has recently taken command of her company. This company is affiliated to The Rifles (having recently rebadged from Light Infantry).

    This means she will shortly be promoted to Acting Major.

    I checked some of the senior officers on the Freedom Parade in Doncaster the other week and noticed that they wear a row of black oakleaves on the peak.

    Mrs F is still wearing the old WRAC pattern Forage Hat that she was issued when God was a lad as, with a strip of black ribbon attached round the body, it passes pretty well as the right colour. I did think it might be a nice 'congratulations old thing' sort of pressie to get her a properly made female pattern Forgar Hat made in Rifles colours (with said oakleaf embroidery).

    I do remember eons ago seeing a link to a company that would make up individual hats for a reasonable cost (by appointment to Generalissimo Idi Amin I believe :D ) but can't remember where I saw it.

    Can any of you fine chaps out there help?
  2. I'm sorry i can be of no help but the title of the thread made me chuckle.
