  1. Hello my unwashed oppo's.

    I've a question one of you may be able to answer.

    I saw a rating of yours bimbling around Collingrad today. Wearing his 3's (Evening rig to those who don't know what 3's are compared to the olden numbers).

    He wore his dolphins and his bomber badges on his left breast like most. However this individual had 3rd one. It is similar to the bomber badge yet one is bigger than the other.

    Never seen anyone wear 3, 2 yes not 3. Anyone know what it is for?

    Kind regards

    Skimmer wanting to know.

    Was this the fella..?

  5. If it was gold fag pin the sad individual has done over 25 bomber patrols, however he should have his dolphins and ONE bomber pin. He's walting in rig.
  6. It was a gold dolphins as standard

    Then two what looked like bomber pins yet one was big one was smaller, couldn't see the detail to give you any more info.

    I knew the entitlement of the dolphins and bomber badges, so was curious to the third
  7. Not name badge, it looked similar to the other grey badge one is the bomber one, the other ??
  9. Thinking on, the smaller one could be for mess undress but still only entitled to the one bomber pin.
  10. Kill him, he's a Walt.

  11. the rating in question is a known bullshitter. he was wearing american dolphins in addition to RN dolphins and bomber pin, he claims to have done a patrol on an american ssn and therefore thinks he is entitled to wear them on his no 3s. he is mistaken & i suggest you point out his personal failings to him at the nearest oppertunity.

  12. Beat me to it G is G. I was going to suggest Yankee kippers.
  13. Either way he ain't entitled.
  14. But nobody in collingwood seems to have the balls to tell him.

    Sounds like he's waiting for someone to bite!
  16. I don't know the regs on it so not really my place to tell him.

    I think BR3 is now updated to reflect the regulations with respect to the Dolphins on 3's, and missile mary badges. Should give you chapter and verse on how and where it should be worn.
  18. What is so special about being on a bomber that warrants a "pin"
