I’ve been trying without any success to be able to access AP1358C V3.0 and I therefore ask the forum members for their understanding on my query:
do new-world APOs RAFAC continue to NOT wear white bands upon their black mohair cap-bands, other than when they are attending Cranwell for OIC at ATF (in other words, the same convention as was the case for OCdts RAFVR(T)?
do new-world APOs RAFAC continue to OFFICIALLY wear white disks at all times behind their beret-badges until completing OIC at ATF? (ie the same convention as was meant to be the case for OCdts VRT, but seemed to be a bit of a variable in practice)
These always struck me as being odd combinations, previously: effectively it meant that pre-grad Offrs had a ‘virtual’/invisible white band around their headgear that only materialised (see what I did there) once they arrived at Cranwell, yet a constant white disk on berets.
So: do APOs RAFAC wear “white-up” hats pre-ATF (which would be somewhat-logical) or not?
Your informed opinion on this matter is appreciated: and have a great ATC Sunday everyone, no matter how you’re observing the day.
