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.

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 ?

FFS, do you want someone to hold your hand as well?

Please, but only if you moisturise.

Really though, I fail to see what the drama is. Some places make shite that will fall apart if you breathe in it, some places make decent things. No harm in asking.
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?

And the wild extrapolation of the day award goes to... As I said in the OP, I'm away from work for a few weeks, and would like to get this admin squared. In lieu of being able to ask around, Arrse is a good substitute.
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...

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.

And my point is that that's all very well (and indeed easy to find), but the quality of some stuff is just shit. Sure, it's only some badgy things, but no point looking a shower of shit from the word go due to wearing crappy things. Details... Asking for recommendations is hardly the world's most heinous crime.
are you RAF?

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........

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.

Forgot to mention zap tag and blood gp written on med pouch of Osprey, but yeah you got a point, you want to see the admin instruction for the placement of the badges a ridiculous amount of A4......

I think that this direction actually came from a brigade Sgt Major. The point of relegating the zap badges to daysacks is that they are not officially issued kit and are simply ignored by med teams. The idea is to have a uniform and professional look to the front of osprey with only ISAF, afghan and that little reflective thing on it.
If you want to write your zap number on your osprey I don't think it's a drama, mine is currently on the top right shoulder bit, as well as on the med pouch where it is supposed to be.
Out of interest how is having your zap on your osprey life insurance?

When your ZAP is relayed to the MERT team the hospital will have your med docs pulled up, they can have the right blood group for you on stand by, if you are allergic to anything measures can be put in place. Also your next of kin details are attached and if you are about to croak the right religious god botherer can be brought in for your last rites.

Life insurance, it means getting the correct treatment in a timely manner, pissing about doing bloods in your golden hour is not the best, ZAP prevents this. Before anyone mentions ID Discs its a extra back up.
