Default 101 Logistic brigade

Good evening,

I have 2 Desert TRF of the 101st Logistic brigade, one with the snake facing left and one facing right. Why these 2 versions ? Thank you

I too have a few, .......

FMA was actually RCT related (The Black Adder) of 10 Regiment Group RCT (1st Gulf War) The CO was given the task of designing a formation badge and asked his son if he would like to help him and his son said "Do you have a cunning plan daddy "?
Which is why the Forward Maintenance Area (FMA) had the Black Adder, which was right facing and black merrow edged only.

This has continued into the 101 Loggies Brigade, as you can see

Are you familiar with the 1980s TV Series (comedy) ‘Black Adder Goes Forth’, Laurent: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackadder_Goes_Forth

It was very popular in Britain, but also in the Army and scenes (film clips) were often used to insert humour in military training lectures, etc. It was large in public consciousness at that time.
