It's one of the CEP CCFs. The school wants its own badge but I suspect costs may play a part. I'll let you know what the outcome is and whether it makes it to production or not.

Production Costs

Anyone on the Forum an idea what the production cost of a badge would be once design approval is granted (ie from die creation through production run)?

Many Thanks.

<Transport> has been dropped from the Regimental title as they are now in the business of fuel supply.

UVF Lapel Badge Identification

Has anyone a list (or has it been posted previously) of the identification letters for the UVF lapel badge? I confess I know some of the more obvious ones but not the complete list.

Many Thanks....

I had understood these Bns had adopted new hackles as part of their new "Regimental identity".

In the case of 6 SCOTS this was a grey hackle and for 7 SCOTS a purple hackle.
