There are few things in this months, new recruits wearing a "flat cap" beret with badge over the left ear and a young lady on the back cover with her belt on backwards.

Andy Capp berets eh? - how on earth do you put a belt on backwards, upside down by the uninitiated I can understand - but backwards? Inside out?

I’ve attached some pics of mine that I haven’t put on my ‘rig’ yet. The story goes that the ‘spider’ is still not officially recognised and that they have ceased production but not, as it happens, wearing them.

They are all made the same way as the pictures attest.

Cheers,
Tom

What's the significance of the spider? Does it draw it's inspiration from the Ananse of the 81st West African Division?

The badge was authorised in September 2015.

"The Spider casts it’s web to collect everything it can".

That is what I was told, also designed by a Member of the Honourable Artillery Company.
