It varies from unit to unit. I wore mine to the front in the Cav and the side as a Scaley.

Check with someone who might know like the Adjutant or RSM.

Wear it with the buckles to the front. You'll look dead hard.

Just wear your plastic working belt, at least until you've worked out how your particular Unit wears it's stable belts.
Also wear working belt if your Unit wears buckle to the side, therefore easier to drop trousers when taking a dump.

It is a Cap Badge thing as to how you wear it.

We (RA) wear ours between the belt loops on our front left. It is ment to be highly polished as well, however can't remember the last time I seen one like that.

Corps now wear belts with locket type buckles to the front as females apparently had issues with the straps on the side when it came to pee pee times. Only the old and bold in the Corps or those who bought them second hand have the old type.

Infantry remained with the straps as no females.

Or at least that is how it was explained to me.

Green Jackets used to wear the straps at the front, not the side. I'm assuming that the Rifles do the same?

Foot Guards wear theirs to the front, the fact we're supposed to have them burned down and bulled might have something to do with it

Or the Fandango?

Yup, my corps has straps too. Lots of females cutting around. Urban myth, me thinks.
Sounds like it to me! That's the last time I believe anyone ever again!

The question is, what badge does your local ACF wear?
