I've been looking over info on the main board and I've seen you get tested on service knowledge. Not my strongest point, this is quite expansive - can anyone give me areas to look at and/or specific examples of questions you receive on this topic?
Well the question was the question... I thought it was referring to the red tabs, but didn't specify the order of dress, which left it slightly vague. I just wanted to check there wasn't some hidden nasty gotcha there.
This is a gorget - a residual piece of armour worn symbolically up until the 19th Century. The red ribbons which retained it around British officers' necks are now symbolized in the gorget-patches:
worn by GS officers. The white-tabs worn by officer cadets and midshipmen are also gorget patches. Different arms of the service used to wear different colour gorget-patches, e.g. medics wore burgundy, padres black, vets blue, intelligence green. Do they still?
