attaching cap badge

Discussion in 'SCC and URNU' started by shipsnthat, Oct 23, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Any tips on this? Is there any correct protocol as re the stitching - don't stitch to the white etc?
  2. Erm...

    Remove the black cloth loop from your cap. Sew the capbadge to the black loop, so that once the cap badge is on the front of your cap the seam of the loop will be at the back of the cap.

    Keep your stitching as small and neat as possible (get mum, gran or gf to do it for you) and make sure you use black thread. Be sure to stitch it down quite firmly; the capbadge is quite inflexible and the last thing you want is for it to come off the first time you put it back on the cap.
  3. Would have been highly amusing seeing it stitched to the white of your cap!
  4. Ta gang.

    Will crack on.

    Get yer normark out, spit on the two holding loops on yer cap badge, press them on to your beret in the required position, stab beret with normark. press through cap badge, fold over.

    Sew the badge over the seam of the cap band (rather than loop) so the seam doesn't show at all.

    No, we are not. Nor are we discussing submarine navigation or the length of NE training in the 1980s.
