TRF placement

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. Quick one - does anyone know the exact distance from the top of the sleeve a TRF should be placed? Saw a photo with all the guides etc on it a while back, but can't find the thing!


  2. Depends on your height to weight ratio, length of arms and of course, the specific Corps or Regt which you belong to. Can you be a tad more specific?
  3. Four fingers width down from the top isn't it?
  4. Still need your height and length of arms, all measurements are relative.
  5. I find the bin in the corner works well for me.....
  6. Its 12 cm from the arm top arm seam. I know don't ask!!

    I thought it was 19cm.
  8. For myself (RAMC) it is 'centre of badge 12cm from shoulder seam' (guidance from Corps RSM)

    Possibly different for RE, so I'd suggest checking RE Dress Regs first and then go with centre of badge 12cm from seam if you don't find anything conclusive :wink:
  9. 12cm from top of seam to centre of TRF on right hand sleeve
  10. All set out here for RE:
