WO2 metal wrist badge

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?
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:
The Gimp shoulder boards made me giggle ;)

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

Mine's gold. Have you been rubbing yours?

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.
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)

Dunno mate, but I thought FAD was on hold?
