Armoured Corps Specialist Trade Badge Help Needed
 
Hi,

I was wondering if there is a chart out there that shows all the armoured corps specialists badges for the 50's battle dress? I have and idea but am not sure on some of them, especially the signallers and group 4.

From what I have:

Group 1:
Driver Wheeled
Driver Tracked
Gunner RCAC
Gunner Signaller
Signaller RCAC

Group 2: (wreath)
Driver Wheeled
Driver Tracked
Gunner RCAC
Gunner Signaller
Signaller RCAC

Group 3:
Specialist RCAC

Groupe 4: Instructor RCAC (which looks to me as a Instructor badge)

This leads me to how come the group 3 instructor badge isn't considered.

Part 2 to my question then goes to the Tan version.

Is the tan version like the DEU's that only has group 1-4 tank? The signallers wouldn't be consider part of the armoured corps at that point?

What you need is a copy of Skill at Arms - 2005 ISBN 1-894255-52-6 as the book will help you understand the relationship between the various trades and the badges associated with them.

Yup. I agree but all the places I looked are sold out. I did have a person send me a picture of the page but I believe there to be errors.
