Gallery Pictures of Badges

I have just been trawling through the pictures of branch badges in the photo gallery. I was hoping to grasp what some of the new badges meant in the way of branches.

Not a single name, title or explanation on any single one, WHY? Granted one or two are obvious but most mean about as much as a 'Spiders Web' does to a 2006 New Entry.

Did you know that they dont get there branch badges until they actually finish there respective branch courses now!

Me thinks that is because they now all go to the same place for specilist training, instead of the branch dedicated traing base, ie. Dryad, Murcury, Sultan, Pembroke, Collingwood, Cambridge, Vernon etc. Branch badges made you part of the team.

Not a good move in my opinion, team building means to make a person part of the team as soon as possible. A bit like telling a squaddie he is not part of the Regiment and can not wear the Regimental Insignia until he has done parts 1 and 2 of his basic training.
