  1. Hi all,

    I need to get a velcro badge thingymajig for my Osprey; standard sketch - Union Flag, zap no. and blood group. Being away from green (khaki now DPM is no more?) land for a few weeks, I don't have access to the usual array of military porn magazines which peddle this stuff, so would be grateful if anybody could recommend somewhere to order one.

    Cheers,
    RB.
     
  2. Global military supplies.

    They also do the ones with your cap badge on it.

  4. Bde instructions for H18 state Zap tags can't be worn on Osprey, only allowed on day sacks, the only badges allowed on Osprey are the ISAF badge, little Afg flag and a tac velcro badge. Zap numbers are to be written inside the flaps of trousers and shirts/ubacs. But you would know that wouldn't you ?
     
  5. Whats the reasons for this (if any)?

  6. FFS, do you want someone to hold your hand as well?
     
  7. **** knows mate, I just followed the instructions as ordered???? same instructions state absolutely NO tape on helmet rims and helmets must be scrimmed up with cloth strips....
     
  8. Just go to your tailoress and get her to make one, if you haven't got one find out what the other lads are doing. Coming onto a forum asking about such a simple thing shows you aren't ready.....what will you do if you come across a real life and death problem? Come on to arrse to find out what to do?
     
  9. Ebay, £10 quid delivered for 2 x Zap tags, number, blood Gp and rank, with free union jack patch. But to be honest mate you really should be able to find that out yourself? Its what others are hinting at...
     
  10. In other words, you are just a lazy **** who cannot be arsed to do the simplest thing yourself. Did you not think that you could use your initiative (it does appear you don't have any) to ring your mates (if you have any) at work and ask them to get that done for you or ask them what they are doing. Or a simple google as others have done here for you.
     
  11. are you RAF?

  12. I'd leave it if I was you fella, they are only frickin zap tags not No1 Dress, I got mine from Ebay good enough, better than the camp tailors anyway, although his were £8........
     
  13. Aye, next time get off your lazy arse. Normally when I deploy I can think of a lot more important things to be concerned with then some badges.
     
  14. I agree with putting that osprey tramp stamps are a little annoying, but putting zap numbers in places that are hard to get to with osprey on is a little stupid, trouser flaps yea covered in blood and trying to read it good idea. Also putting on bags not such a good idea multiple cas whose bag is whose on scene. Put the ******* zap on your osprey anyone asks its your life insurance. Got to be a bored officer muppet that came up with that. I know put the zap on the bottom of your shoe, it worked for woody in toy story.
