AP1358c Update to reflect CFC


#21

Do exactly the same with an ATC badge for everyone.


#22

i’ll point at my rank slide which now clearly states which branch of the RAF I belong and respectfully direct him to 1358C - that is should i ever meet a SWO.

In all my time I have only met a Station SWO only because he was also the Regt WO and had to liaise regarding coordinating some dry weapons training in his Regt building.


#23

Will a SWO have access to BADER and 1358C?


#24

TEST Sgt gave me the purple one and told me to have the RAF TRF off quickstep.


#25

Not our problem it’s his. Secondly not being in the RAF or Mill we dont answer to him


#26

Strictly speaking if you are on his station then yes you do.


#27

That’s nuts. Is he responsible for all the contractors on station as well then?


#28

You’re wearing the uniform on the station he’s on, or are you impersonating a military serviceperson by wearing it?


#29

pass - they will be asking why i have RAF Regt (looking) slides on my shoulders before they see a TRF i suspect!


#30

No. I never impersonate a military service person. I am a cadet forces officer. Not military. Not serving. So yes if he came and told me something I would tell him (politely) to mind his own business.


#31

When would you be wearing both rank slides on your shoulder and a TRF?


#32

Would you be the same with the Station Commander?


#33

It depends what he asked. But this is getting a bit off topic.


#34

Clearly I won’t.
But either way I’d suspect a SWO to have great grievances with the size of my rank slide on my shoulder or otherwise than any TRF as from a distance the rank slide is more readily seen


#35

Worth perhaps recalling that OC TEST and his Sgts are not in your CoC; your CoC is your Contingent Commander, your Head, and RF&C Division MOD, in that order. Everything else is a dotted line. Of course, if your Cont Comd has ordered you to then that’s another matter. As I said, I’m waiting for something in writing (and have been happily wearing the RAF TRF including on Summer Camp without complaint).


#36

@tmm - same as that. In the absence of any written order, authority or instruction, I’ve continued to wear my RAF TRF without any adverse comments.

And I’ll continue to do so.


#37

I’ll follow the dress regs, especially as I’ve not been issued the purple one yet.


#38

big fan of following dress regs meself too.

I’ll wear a TRF when they issue it, together with the issued clobber to wear it on…


#39

Me neither so I couldn’t wear it even if I wanted to!


#40

@Bobthebuilder @Gunner If you were really that fussed I am sure a word in your TEST Sgts shell would produce them.
