When Can We Wear the QDJM? Harrys got his....

#2
As per the Din he shouldn't be, however, tell his Grandma!

Large can be worn in the 7th Jun, unless you are on the official parade in London in Beginning of May, you can wear it from then on.

Seeing as he is on the a Royal Visit as part of the DJ celebrations in lieu of his Gran... I guessing he should be wearing it, seeing as he is wearing it.

Or he's going to get a slap from his Granddad on his return :D

Seeing as he didn't join the army until after I joined the navy and I dont qualify for the QGJM are you going to write a letter saying he shouldn't be wearing that either?

A question on Harry's dress, if he is now a qualified apache pilot in the Army Air Corps, why does he still wear his old cap badge. All other pilots that I know do rebadge AAC, I know years back you could wear your own cap badge for a two years, then opt to stay and rebadge AAC or return to old unit/Regt/Corps.

Any other soldier/officer who has had so much training invested in them would be told to rebadge on successful completion of the course, the MOD could not afford pilots returning to their old Regt ect every two years then train fresh pilots.

Is it because a Royal can not serve in a Corps?

Any AAC arrsers know the answer??

He will probably transfer on completion of his first tour as a pilot.

Its the normal with people passing the APC from other arms

(This could be out of date, been out a while)

I beleive he qualifies for it as a member of the royal family (for example thats how he got his QGJM), not as a member of the British Army.

According to the Telegraph H.M. granted special permission for its wear.
He also wore a Diamond Jubilee medal, having been given special permission by the Queen to wear it earlier than other members of the armed forces, alongside a Golden Jubilee medal and his Afghanistan campaign medal.

He won't transfer to AAC. Why would he leave the Household Division? He's on attachment.

He could do what all other other arms pilots (officers & SNCO’s) do, he will complete a flying tour and then either be offered a transfer and transfer or go back to his own unit or not be offered a transfer and go back to his own unit.

However, being that he is a prince, he will do whatever his Grandmother wants him to do :)

He will have a greater chance deploying with the AAC than Cav.

If his brother can serve in the RAF I think the AAC will be good enough for him when it's appropriate.

The only element that is AAC is his Beret, and wings. Check his button and arm insignia...still wearing parent unit dress!
Do the household cav or whatever they are called have different tropical dress regs than the guards? I was in hong kong for the handover and everyone wore tropical number 1's except the scots guards, they said they weren't allowed not to wear their scarlet tunics. I would have thought the household cav would have followed the same pattern, although of course they could be sensible!
