RAFAC Badges for Officers No5's


#1

Has anyone managed to find an embroidered badge version of the RAFAC pins for Officers No5’s as yet? Seems a shame to punch holes through a brand new jacket!


#2

Think they are selling them on CD, seen them in the autumn magazine


#3

Yeh, had a look there and couldn’t see them…


#4

They are in the catalogue, give them a ring?


#5

just did - deffo not an item they stock. They are waiting on Cranwell to confirm the design… only had RAFAC pins for a year now…


#6

Good luck! :joy: wait another ten years and you might see them. However, why are CD advertising this in their catalogue if it’s not yet been approved?


#7

probably the same reason they advertised the new rank slides before they were ‘approved’


#8

Would you like a minute to think about the question you just asked?


#9

Snaith’s are the official supplier for these and they had stocks in, or at least they did when I last ordered some about 6 months ago.


#10

why not sew them on?

break off the legs that go through the jacket, position accordingly and sew on with clear fishing line


#11

Also, they are little holes and won’t really damage the material in any significant way.


#12

I will just leave my embroidered on as i have done 10 years and i am now a retired VRT officer. I could go into the question idf not having a letter of appointment to CFC or a scroll or nothing in the Gazette or lettor of retirement/removal. But whadt is the point, it is not like anybody cares about little thing like that do they​:wink::wink::wink::wink::wink:?

I got mine from Snaiths also 6 months ago. They weren’t on the website, you had to ring Cranwell and ask.

Snaiths seem to be the option for people I know who have the material ones and not pins.
