On the scrolling news section of sharepoint, there is a bulletin regarding the introduction of Membership Cards for CIs, Civ Comm, and Chaplains.
I’m assuming that it won’t be a MOD90, so I’m wondering what the point in it really is? Is it going to be another ‘Certificate of credentials’ fiasco? Has anyone seen any designs, or heard anything other than what has (not) been released so far?
I’m all for issuing official and accredited identification cards, but if it isn’t accepted in the guardroom the same way a MOD90 is, we may as well stick to the current method of bringing a passport/photo ID, being issued a temporary pass, and save the money…
I believe its not regarded the same ‘status’ as MOD90’s so will most likely not going to be accepted by the guardroom without a pass, however I believe it does mean that only green passes should be issued and not the red unescorted ones.
The design was attached to the letter to station commanders I believe.
I find it interesting these are referred to as “membership” rather than “ID” cards.
On that basis, as a wording exercise at least, these shouldn’t be accepted as ID cards.
I could offer my “membership card” to the library, swimming pool, gym, RBL or Blockbusters and have the same level of “validity” as this card?
i have to echo @drillbitch’s comments. this looks very DIY and I wonder how many in the MGR will accept it.
can someone explain why a MOD90 or “MOD civilian” equivalent ID card would not be straightforward?
It includes name and expiry with the addition of height, DOB and branch.
Why try to reinvent the wheel???
Wow. I was thinking it might have been designed to look a little like a Mod 90, or even like the national identity cards you can get. But that looks more like the membership card I got when I was in the Dennis the Menace fan club!
