Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Quick question, the WO2 (RQMS) metal wrist badge, with leather backing....i heard Future Army Dress rules means it has to be gold now and not silver. Any one know the definitive answer?

  2. Dunno mate, but I thought FAD was on hold?
     
  3. I know parts are in, such as the new No2's but rumour is the wrist badge needs to be gold. :? Reason i ask is our Unit have stupid ruling that WO's and Officers have to wear No2 trousers, shirt and forage cap on Mondays :evil:

    Wrist insignia for Rifles WO1, RQMS/TQMS & WO2 are still 'Black japanned finish'.

    Blimey - don't think much of the Rifles' mess kit. Not a patch on the old LI or RGJ style.

    Chunter chunter...
     
  8. Mine's gold. Have you been rubbing yours?
     
  9. mine was gold too, so was my WO1 badge.
     
  10. so is mine but a mate has a silver one but he has to change it over to a gold one due to FAD. So was wondering the word on the street.
     
  11. I was wearing a gold one in 2002.
     
  12. The old LI WOs used to wear silver - but every other one I've seen has been black or gold. Mine was gold back in the 90s (DWR)
