Unbelievable

Here is the new 8 Force Engr Bde flash. I don't know who made it, but he must have been smoking crack at the time. The cross is a particularly weak thought, as I am sure the padre may have some issues with his protective emblem and his religious symbology being abused in this way. The shield combined with the cross seems to suggest a crusade- particularly helpful in this time of very sensitive inter-cultural unease.

I genuinely despair when I think that some fool has suggested this sh1te and his master has approved it. This is simply pathetic.

Agreed. Absolute crap. There must be some sort of reasoning behind it though. Makes you wonder whether there's some obscure historical reference they're trying to draw but it has gone way off beam. Any ideas anyone?

A cross and a shield. "Off on a Crusade then", thinks Johnny Arab.

I can imagine the dress committee all toasting each other over this one. "Doubles all round".
Wonder if it was that idiot chopper "Corps" RSM who decided that RE EOD should wear an ATO badge on our right arms.......

What numpties.

I'm currently sewing one on each lapel, in order to get free wine, bread and fishes. It is only a matter of time before we are all told to unpick them and sew the old CCF shoulder flashes back on.

If the coloured version is a yellow cross on a blue shield the it goes back to the old 8th Army flash from WW2.

Chain mail, does anyone else think that this is Tony's way of giving us new ish body armour, straight from the Armouries, saves his mate a fortune from the money pit not having to buy Kevlar.

That would be really great - walking round in Iraq with that on 8O Not least as Baibars - hero of the third crusade (in Arab eyes anyway) and who finally "kicked out the infidels" is something of a folk hero in Iraq. I feel sure it will enhance public relations over there and lead to some interesting discussons with the locals. Watch out for incoming scimitar charges chaps :roll:
