Default Special Reconnaissance Regiment Qualification Badge

Does anyone know what it looks like or better still have an image of the proposed Special Reconnaissance Regiment qualification badge?

The trident - from the FRU motto; "Fishers of Men".

Is this what you mean. No mention of the SRR using it, only approved for members of the Intelligence Corps advanced qualified Human Intelligence operators. And no one has seen one yet.

There is a basic operators badge as well, the advanced has yellow trident and the basic white. I've been told that SRR has a slightly different version of this qualification badge. Apparently they're on display at the Intelligence Corps museum at Chicksands although I've not seen one myself

The tridents are gold (advanced handler) and silver (basic handler) not yellow and white.

By no means all who wear them are Int Corps.

There are also versions for mess dress.

And of course there is the stable belt.

Its piscatores hominum nowadays, they've got all posh and latin...

Are you referring to 3 different units, SRR, ICorps and another?

I'm not talking about SRR at all.

I'm talking about the unit that wears the trident...
