While watching the RBL festival of remembrance to-night,i noticed some members of the RAF Regiment were wearing single chevrons (army L/Cpl).
Is it a new rank (since 1970), or is it a change of rank badge?ie.J/T from the four prop badge,or what.. scratch

I noticed that as well, Gordon. Apparently the rank of LCpl was introduced to "Identify the critical leadership role undertaken by nominated and experienced Gunners on RAF Regiment front line units". Maybe we are heading towards a "Single Cap Badge" by stealth. Smile Smile

Never mind a single cap badge, what about a single European Armed Forces. Seems like the recent deal with the French Navy might just be the tip of the iceberg.

I always thought the RAF Regiment had the same rank structure as the Army and Marines. Just shows doesn't it.

LOL

Didn't the Canadian armed forces join into a single structure at one point?

L/Cpl-Stripe: Probably the 'JUNIOR TECHNICIAN RANK' here as we become more sophisticated in Weaponary & Explosives & Equipment Technology associated, a simple 'Rifleman' becomes more of the past in Skills & Specialisms etc., check with the RAF REGIMENT, they will confim for you.

Probably find not only will they bring all arms under one cap badge but will rely on long range missile technology and start calling all forces The Home Guard (ring any bells)
