British Badges Worn during Reign of Queen Elizabeth II

Recommended Posts

You might wish to recaption the badge of the Foot Guards Company Quartermaster Sergeant on page 7 to that of Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant. The CQMS wears the same badge as the Colour Sergeant.

Ditto page 8. The two bar chevron in the Foot Guards is the badge of rank of the Lance Corporal.

Glenn:

Thank you so much for your comments. I will make the corrections as soon as possible. I will be putting more badges up next week.

Bruce,

my pleasure. I don't recall ever seeing a red backed Foot Guards RQMS crown worn on full dress (or any other order of dress for that matter). Here is an example from the Coldstream Guards.

Thanks again and you are of course right. I have that badge and can replace it. What is that rank when worn by a band Warrant Officer? I have a lot of You Tube footage of Foot Guards Bands and I did notice while most of the badges were on a blue backing, I clearly saw a member of the Irish Guards Band with one on a red backing. Must be an anomaly.

Bruce,

Band Sergeant Major. The Bandmaster (WO1) wears a small Royal coat of Arms on the lower right arm as opposed to the large badge as worn by the Regimental Sergeant Major on the upper right arm. Note that Foot Guards RSMs assigned to positions outside their parent battalion (unless a former RSM of a Foot Guards battalion) also wear the small coat of arms on the lower arm.

Regards

Glenn
