I rather like the SFC stable belts but this is nasty.

Is it being worn across the Squadrons and by all SFC qualified pax, or just Royal Signals?

Sorry all I have.

"The Wire"
The new SFC cap badge was endorsed on 18 Aug 20 and was marked by a small ceremony in the church on Stirling Lines by the Unit Padre, with the Master of Signals Lieutenant General Nick Pope KCB CBE and HQ 1 (UK) Signal Brigade Commander Brigadier John Collyer in attendance.

The idea is that it is worn by all of 18 Sig regt SFC's including the non-RSIGNALS ones such as RM who might understandably not want to replace the RM cap badge with the Jimmy even on a SAS beret.

Just to be clear - are Royal Marine SFCs (who are Commando qualified and entitled to wear a green beret) foregoing their Marine and Commando heritage and wearing the Army SAS biege beret, while the SBS themselves are wearing green RM Commando berets with SBS cap badge?

I presume not. The SBS beret is Lovat Green, so attached pax (RM, RN, RAF, Int Corps, RLC etc, have always worn that assuming they are commando qualified - and that includes the R Sigs guys in the Sig Sqn). I also presume the same applies with the SRR's emerald grey berets - it certainly does for REME, AGC etc...
