Name tapes (No. 4 shirt)

#1
Before I order a batch of name tapes, should the format be

OTHER A
OTHER A N
OTHER A.
OTHER A.N.
OTHER

(the first?)

Also who officially makes them? I've seen many of the Cadet Direct type at £14.50 + £4 p&p (since when did it cost FOUR of your English to post those?)

I've found
these via Google - do they look any good?

Any other known suppliers?

Many thanks.

They give you a wooden stamp with your name on it and a spitkid with a bit of felt in the bottom and black paint on it. Eventually you get the hang of it and you do a good one and sew it on your shirt. BTW its No.8s - surprised they didn't tell you that :)

You had it easy, I'm still waiting for the tree to grow from the seed they gave me.

Name tapes were always Christian name initials first followed by surname in full, but what the fcuk do i know only served fro 56 to 79.
I suppose you could be classed as an "Old Salt" then, higs.

Not for about 5 or 6 years now.....
Longer than that, I think. I am sure it changed just before I joined in May 1997 - I remember seeing something on the noticeboard about 12s becoming 3s and so on.
You're right. gods, time flies.

think I might be due my GOM PJT sometime soon.... :D

I'm losing it.

If 8's are 4's and 2's look like 1's and half blues have NO blue in them at all, what would you get for 9's?
