Default FALKLAND CONFLICT CAP BADGES ,

What do we think would have been the least seen cap badge worn during the Falklands Conflict please ? I have always believed R.A.D.C attached to the medical services but a mate has come up with Army pay corps ! where they there ?

Cap badges of the Falklands war.
(These are not mine but could be an idea for a new collection of badges)

That's a great display Jerry.

There would be a few regiments and corps that would have supplied a single soldier . I'm sure I have an image of the troops landing. There is an RRF soldier amongst them.

What about the SBS, could they be represented by their collar, or was there nothing like those at the time? Submariners badge? Not actually on the Falklands but deffinately in the area!

The SBS wore normal Royal Marines insignia until 2003.

Default Falklands Task Force Frame

In answer to previous questions there were at least two Royal Army Dental Corps soldiers with the Royal Army Medical Corps during the conflict - and I've found at least one record of an RAPC attached to the Welsh Guards but presumably would have retained his cap badge ? I'm sure there will be other individuals on attached service but whether or not they wore "their" cap badge is matter of further research. For the purposes of a "comprehensive" display of combat badges - where would you stop? Thought I'd share this frame that I've just rediscovered having cleared the loft in a lockdown frenzy - it dates from 1982 and was professionally framed and I'm probably going to move it on if anyone's interested in it.

I think there is no doubt that the RAPC you mention would certainly have retained his badge whilst attached to the WG, I certainly remember some very colourful staff at Sir John Moore barracks who were members of that particular Corps!
