Army Hazardous Skill cloth badge...date?


Recommended Posts

Would like to know what era this badge is from....an 'ammunition examiner' with RAOC, per the card it came with. Melton backing, no glow threads (if that helps) and thread burn test is like WWIi era...

 

Cheers, and Best regards...

I believe this badge 'A' within flames was worn by Ammunition Inspection Staff, introduced 30.09.50.

In 1978 its use was extended to Ammunition Technical Officers, Ammunition Executive Officers, RAOC, and Ammunition Technicians, RAOC.

By 1997 it was worn solely by Ammunition Technical Officers and Ammunition Technicians (Other Ranks).

Introduced in 1950 and worn for some time after.  Ammunition Examiners, Royal Army Ordnance Corps and Assisstant Ammunition Examiners, RAOC (WRAC).  per 1953 edition of Badges on Battledress.  Just piggy backing on Stephen's information.

As far as I know, still worn to this date by Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) Ammunition Technical Officers on FAD, the modern version of No2 Dress uniform. There is a No1 dress version which has a black background with gold wire.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
