NOTE This topic isn’t for discussing whether it’s right/wrong/against regs - so don’t.
We’ve just reformed our two flights which is quite a nice thing given this time last year we were parading about six - and our OC seems pretty persistent on bringing in flight tabs to denote flights. Not sure I agree personally but I won’t argue.
They need to be red for one flight and yellow for the other. I’ve looked into getting some proper rank slides made in a similar design to the UAS ones, with the white square being either red or yellow and the flight number written underneath on a primarily black slide. The only issue is that these would be £3 a pair and the minimum order is 10 pairs - so we’d end up having to spend probably about £90 to get enough pairs.
I’m not so fond of spending £90 of squadron funds on tat, so I was thinking I could just make some small tabs myself out of ribbon or something. Has anyone had any experience doing this that would be able to tell me how you did it?
