Search for advice or rather a link to military graphics

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:

    I'd like to do some 'Army Charity Card Sets' after my holiday.

    I do have patterns for the little bears in army clothes (more than enough by now :lol: ),
    problem is, I'm not familiar with the different units, companies, regiments, whatever, guess you know what I mean. ;)

    So, is there any website where I can find badges and all those emblems or insignia or whatever you call it to go along with those units?

    I think it should be something like cap badges and / or shoulder badges and / or chest badges (in case there are different ones).

    But most important would be that there is some explanation to go along with the graphics.
    Otherwise I wouldn't know where to put them and what belongs together. :oops:

    Well, I never claimed to have any knowledge about the army, so excuse me to ask such bone questions. ;)

    Someone has already volunteered to help with the graphics, and thanks again for that. :)

    Btw, what kind of units would make sense at all?
    I mean I don't think there are lots of Royal Navy personell in here. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    And finally @ Mods or Admins: I didn't know where to put this, so sorry if it's the wrong place.
    After all it's for Hols4Heroes and I guess most of you would rather help than neglect colleagues.

    Thanks for every link, hint, whatever. :thanks:

    Thank you again, msr. :)

    With all these links I should be able to create cards with 'correct' bears. ;)

    Anything useless to create ?
    (Such as Navy cards, I guess. ;) )

    Ooops, any idea where I can find those up-to-date ones then ?
  8. YIM - Just be careful with the new unit badges as the MOD has copyrighted them all and it could get sticky if you sell these cards!

    Thanks for the advice, BLR. :thanks:
    No idea whether I will do any of them at all then. What a pity. :(

    Brilliant and thank you, BR.

    Copyright on these as well ? Do you know ?
    I will try to get this authorised when I'm back from my holiday.
    It can't be bad to use the badges for charity.
  11. No idea...

    Best bet is to probably mod the badges in a tiny detail...

    Or dont publicise the fact your doing it...

    Or F' the law

    Can't do the last one. :lol:

    But thanks for the idea of keeping badges tiny. Might work that way.
