By all means use the images in your album, it will help make a useful resource. I thought I had seen light blue ones but evidently not. Hopefully there are others out there. As you say, a neglected aspect of uniform distinction.

Default 152 (North Irish) Regiment RLC Pipers.

Red flash worn by piper. Comes as a double flash left (back shown). But separated to make a pair. Photos show the double flash worn when the band was RLC.

That's great can I add these to the album as a point of reference for others? I als remember seeing pipers from the UDR in Sennelager wearing saffron would they have been the same pattern as the Irish Guards?
Regards
Sean

Default Garter Flash

Sean no problem using the pics. Most Irish regiments wore saffron flashes. Thought there might have been some minor variation to shape and size. The Royal Irish Regiment pipers wear red.

Dug these out.

The top 3 courtesy of a 41 RM Commando mechanic/electrician. Cannot recall his explanation unfortunately, after all these years (1977) I believe they pertained to a specific company.

Bottom 2 are different-sized R. Signals, also acquired locally. Note that both are reversed.

. . . The garter tabs on the other hand were issued along with hosetops of regimental colour, in REME we wore navy blue hose tops and a red and yellow garter tab. The RA wore khaki hosetops and although I can't remember I'd guess at red and blue flashes.
REMEVMBEA1. In Malaya in '65 - '66, we REME attached to RASC/RCT had the navy blue hose tops, with putties, but our garter tabs were a light blue. I was under the impression that all REME tabs were light blue, unless your red and yellow were a regimental embellishment, unless that is, that ours were, as I can't remember what the RASC/RCT wore!

I am looking for a pair for my RLC collection as well as a RLC pipers bullion cabeen badge.

I also have a pair of Dark Blue which I am not sure about (reported to be early RAOC but changed when Dark Blue hose tops were adopted)

Hi Sean, Here is a picture of New Zealand Ordnance Corps (RNZAOC) Garter Tabs. These were only worn by RNZAOC Soldiers posted to Singapore Between 1970 and 1989.

If you want I can take a better picture of a complete pair and I will try and track down some other New Zealand Examples.

Cheers
Rob

That's great Rob, can I add them to the album so it becomes a reference guide for others?
Cheers

picked these up recently, RA from the colours and from what is shown in this thread. They seem a good match to the aussie set shown.
