Hi Fellas,

Just been catching up on badges of rank and see the GSM of London District has a new badge - well, not really new as it has been revived from that in use during King William IV. This is it :



Rank Post-1487-0-88409100-1325547317

It is now being used by the present GSM LD - WOI (RSM) 'Billy' Mott, Welsh Gds.

If the Guards Divisions' badges of rank grow any more they will have to add an extra sleeve to their uniforms. Rolling Eyes

I agree Shelldrake. It's an enormous badge and according to the article, the Master Taylor of the London District has only made fiveof the gold badges. Don't kmow who else will wear it.

We have a RASM who now wears his badge of rank a la GSM Londist and AcSM Sandhurst, I think that they are all trying to outdo each other!

They could appoint a minion to carry the badge on a pole, y'know, like the Roman legions did.

The trouble then of course, would be title for the geezer carrying the pole ! Suspect
