    Would someone be able to tell me roughly how long it'll take to change capbadge within a unit? Say from CMT to infantry. Is it just a case of changing some paperwork and might take a couple of days or more like a few weeks?

  2. Put in a transfer last year,took about four months from going in front of the OC to all paperwork coming back from Glasgow.
  3. It depends on the admin of both units.

    It can take ages. You'll just have to keep on top of it.

    It can be weeks or months to get the paperwork through depending on how efficient both units are. You would then have to do CIC, and possibly the TSC(A) Inf weekends before that.
  5. Need to do TSC inf but the transfer should take a couple of weeks if your unit got it shit squared away
  6. didn't think they had CMT's in the TA anymore?
  7. I didn't get that memo, best throw my capbadge in the bin.
