Yes they are Blazer badges, purchased from the RLC. The caubeen is blue, but the badge has a black backing. Earlier caubeens were green, and the badge had a green backing.

Hiya guys,

Just been reading this post, sorry for the delay in my reply.

I have a number of good clear images to show of the Badge, Caubeen & Uniform of 152 (Ulster) Transport Regiment RLC (v)

They are now called 152 (North Irish) Transport Regiment RLC (v)

Also; Note the REME badge

Hiya Leigh,

All I can tell you is it's a large Bullion badge and is sewn onto the Caubeen, but also note the same colour of the Hackle (Blue over Red)

Yes its a REME Blazer badge, he's 152 Regiment. There was also a RAMC bugler who wore a RAMC Blazer badge on the caubeen.

<Transport> has been dropped from the Regimental title as they are now in the business of fuel supply.

The REME personnel are now part of 157 Fd Coy REME (part of 102 Bn REME).
