  • 2* Rank Markings

    Just to let you know that it looks like the DF have finally decided to issue 2* rank markings for the DPM's. I emailed the RDFRA and got this reply,

    "the first supplies of the 2* rank markings for use with the DPM will be available for issue within the next month."

    Just keeping you all informed and answering a rumour post of a couple of months back

            I don't know what unit you're in but it looks like the 7th have them. As far as I know we don't yet.

            The official word is:

            "the first supplies of the 2* rank markings for use with the DPM will be available for issue within the next month."

                      2* rank makings a waste of time scence most 2*s are pushed on through the system fairly quickly.

                        Thats because you have a bloody Cadre CQ T.I.M. unlike us who have a CPL.

                        No norwegian Kermit?? thats because ur in CIS u dont need one!! does it get THAT cold in the Back of an FFR??

                        2 star Rank markings were there for 60 years why get rid of them now Its a RANK therefore they should have markings, and in most units (though not all) it takes roughly 8 or 9 months to become a 3 star.

                          That’s the way it works in the 6 FAR. Personally speaking I was rather proud to put on my two stars when I got them, yeah within a years time I was a full three star but that not the point, its a badge of achievement and should be worn by those who have earned it.

                              I reckon it's a bit silly to have a rank and not be able to show what you've achieved, as far as anyone else is concerned you're going to be a recruit until you get your three stars. The sooner these two star markings come into full circulation the better, small question though, why are we only getting them now, surely some bigwig must have forseen the fact that reservists spend considerably more time at two star rank level than their PDF counterparts. Still best not jinx it for anyone.
