BWEF - May I politely ask that you keep your language moderated. This is one of the few forums I visit which manages to maintain a reasonable level of decency and respect for others.

UOTC Precedence?

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is any kind of order of precedence for the UOTC's, or is it just 'alphabetical'?

Hi Stephen,

I work in a SW Cat C (I'm not a collector of HMPS items) and I've heard a rumour that they're going to get rid of the stripes and revert back to pips on epaulettes. Anyone else heard this one?
