If you've got a badge with a vertical clip like a pen then you have to to some sewing! Get some dark or beret coloured thread and sew a horizontal stitch at the place you need the top of the clip to be to make the badge rest in the right position. Then keep sewing in the same place so that you have a chunk of stitches, all the same size, jammed up together. Then slip the clip of the badge through behind the stitches. You can do the same for lower down the clip as well, if it needs to be more secure.
im in the OTC, thats why im asking, some people are saying that i have to cut a hole in the beret and put the pin through that to secure it, im hopeless at sewing so i cant do that ahhhh
i need to do it by tuesday
It depends, my OTC beret from 4 years ago had a leather pocket type thing to accept the pen like clip on the beret badge. If you haven't got one of those on your beret then i would go with what threeportdrift has said!
Maybe this is a further case of costcutting!
Don't they do lessons on how to look after/prep your kit when you first join?
I'm at SUOTC. Our berets sound similar. We have a leather strip inside the beret that forms a pocket for the pen-clip to slide into. However in order to get the clip inside the pocket you need to cut a small hole from the front of the beret through into the leather strip. Then just slide the clip through and try and wiggle it into the pocket.
You'll work it out! The hard bit is shaping the thing to look decent on your noggin!
If all else fails take to it with the black maskers!
ive already done my first exercise so the next one is a weekend away to sandhurst, exercise new cadet for me wasa lot easier than selection weekend. we had to carry our rifles with us all weekend do a march up a hill with webbing day sack and rifle then do some lessons about living in the field, cooking in the field and learning about ranks, the last one was done in the rain...we were soaked but it was fun. finally we done some pt in involved pushinga landrover for 800m along with carrying other stuff like a metal stretcher ammo containers tyres on poles, barrels sacks with heavy stuff in...it sounds bad but youll love it
