'New look' for Royal Navy Police

From Truth Central this morning; but dated yesterday;

http://www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/DefenceNews/PeopleInDefence/newLookForRoyalNavyPolice.htm

A significant milestone in the 300-year history of the Royal Navy Police has been marked with the makeover of the force's rank badges.

Following a series of high level reviews spanning the past few years, it was decided that a change should be made to the badges which also culminated in the change of name from Regulators to Royal Navy Police.

The new rank badges include the words 'RN Police' woven into the bottom of standard rank and rate slides, with shoulder flashes to be worn when in dress and tropical uniform:

"The change reflects our role today alongside our land and air counterparts," said Lieutenant Commander Mark May, Naval Provost Marshal Northern, based at HM Naval Base Clyde. "Individual rank titles will remain unchanged, but badges will be altered to incorporate a Service police identity.

"It is a strange and humbling feeling to know that you are part of this tradition and present at another milestone in the history of the branch."



With a budget hole the size of planet, a shrinking capability and Units stretched to their limits, it's good to know that we can concentrate on the serious business of Jointery.

I liked it when they operated the gate barriers and asked for ID cards, very fitting. Gate goes up gate goes down.
 
Is it just me growing more cantankerous or is the standard of reporting getting worse?

1945 saw the introduction of Leading Patrolmen, before reverting back to the term Regulator in 1968.

It’s good to know that the Laws the Universe are in good order and that things aren’t reverting forward.

Actually not quite true! The RPO aka Coxswain on board the fishboats when I was in fish, issued the leave warrants.

Why have "RN POLICE" it's not hard to see that the LReg will have a crown on his shirt (as shown in phot) and the RP0/Joss will have a crown on their tie inidcating that they are Reggies!! and if they are wearing jumpers they will also have a crown on their stbd arm just for good measure. Plus the fact that they all live in the Reg orifice is a dead give away. Waste of MOD money on somthing trivial, can't have anything decent to spend the money on. (ships/aircraft/body armour/tanks/fuel/ammo just a few other important things!!!!!)
 
I like the 'high level' meetings that were held ... :thumbright:

You don't suppose they wanted it because the RAF have 'police' and the Army have 'em too and they wanted a posh title also ?

How do they answer the 'phone ? ..... "Leading Policeman Bloggs / Petty Officer Policeman Smiff" ... etc .... :?:

I bet my old man, an ex Crusher, and sadly ctb this year, would be splitting his sides if heard this - mind you he might be doin so in the other place !!

Splitting hairs a bit there Tommo, even if true. No doubt SPB will be on soon to inform us all of the very hard work they do lifting us innocent young matelots. :)

Aye tis true. He did alot of the office paperwork including Leave Warrants, Drafts etc we only had one writer on board and the RPO. They're also ABO's as well. But bear in mind this is fish patrol mind you and we only had at one point 28 out of the 40 compliment on board due to shortage at that time. But the coxswain did do a fair bit on the fish boats I've got to admit.

The RPO is now a WOMAA I do believe now.
 
Can we have a caption competition reference the Photo at the start of this thread as the bald twat in the middle looks like he needs a good verbal caning!!

I bet the WOMAA ain't happy he's only been issued with 3 Eppaulettes(spelling?) not two pairs like the rest
 
Ooops! a small man, with glasses to boot, in a position of authority. Not much seems to have changed then!

Previous winners of the annual "I was bullied at school" competition join together to recruit personnel who have no chance whatsoever of being promoted in their current trade.
 
Crushers are easy to spot anyway, just check out the back of the head for the scar, where the brain was removed.

Failed in your own branch, transfer to the Navy Police!!

Sorry, but somone was going to say it
