Whats on Your Body Armour

#1
Hi guys,

Just a quickie. What do you guys have written on your body armour when your deploying on ops? I have a space, green tape, over the chest plate that I assume is for name, number, blood group etc.

Thanks for the advice.

Cheers chaps. What makes up your ZAP number, is it the last two of your surname and then last 4 of your service number. Trust the RAF not to teach us that lol!

First two letters of your surname plus your last four. So Pte T Atkins 12345678 would be AT1234.

The RAF didn't teach you? Did you ask the question.........................?

As previous, First two letters of surname followed by last 4 numbers (ignoring any letters!) ie BE 6965

Dont even bother with the zap,
If your mate gets shot and you need to pass that information to higher, its alot easier to send his name in clear and let the Ops room read the zap from a nominal roll, than for you to get to him, find a zap relay it back to the cmdr on the radio and have him send it up when as a commander he will doubtless be busy doing other things.

I dont think its a case of dont even bother. When on herrick we HAD to have the zap number on there.

....And how many times did the commander on the ground read off the zap number diligently relayed to him by the bloke flapping treating his best mate bleeding in front of him?

how many times did the commander pass the blokes name, in clear, into the secure bowman radio to let the 2ic deal with, so that he as a commander could get on with winning a firefight and processing casualties rather than compiling needless R2's that can be compiled elsewhere?

In a Welsh regiment? I mean, all those Jones, Evans and the rest.......Or perhaps one of the Fijian regiments? or attached Gurkha's..?

And that is pretty much the reason that a bloke got left behind at Jugroom fort... sh1t drills!

With all these different answers on here, my answer would be either:

1) Go ask somebody in your unit who does know the answer. That way, you'll either be right, or you'll all be wrong. Either is OK.
2) Write on it, in plain text 'nobody told me what to write on here'

A sewn on Union Jack and a tack-on Help For Heroes Button. The former drives Senior Police Officers up the wall but nobody has officially instructed me to remove it.
