Approximately $750,000 is being spent to design and acquire new badges.

If only we could procure radios and trucks at such speeds. Oh well, at least I can grow a beard.

I can't wait to see the ridiculous mock-'qualification' badges the razor wits in our JR's mess come up with. :D

Before I stick up any of my 4 decades worth of qualification badges (some of which are obsolete but still pretty cool)... I need a new shirt.

$750,000 buys about 12 top end manpack radios or likely only 2 trucks.

Patches were probably easier to push through the PSPC procurement labyrinth.

That English/Francais dude at a desk badge is RCMP and actually enforced in some places... usually pinned to the name tag.

Isn't that amount under the threshold required to need Treasury Board approval?

The only bright side to this is it will cut the number of people asking if I am a vehicle tech just because I have a RCEME cap badge. Assuming they look at my left arm of course.......

Good to see that the Army will buy me an Airborne t-shirt, or the regimental equivalent in other arms/services.  ::)

I find it amusing that the new badges are referred to as "Garrison Dress Badges".  What's old is new again.

In another vein of this, I have noted a lot of units now moving rank insignia from centre of chest to the Velcro arm patch while wearing fighting order ... right back to where it was before Velcro on the previous olive combats.

I hear Ottawa will not pursue this $0 solution but will instead develop upgrades to armour and tacvests so that these will have new locations to attach Velcro rank somewhere in the front of one’s torso.

Clearly, we need Health Services to begin surgically implanting velcro into the foreheads of all people who wear an Army DEU to they can stick their rank there and have it visible, regardless of the uniform being worn.

Maybe they should upgrade the ICE and wet weather jackets first so that we can utilize one rank identifier, not two. Then we could eliminate troops wandering around with no rank on their outerwear because the RQ is short of the old slip-on style but has plenty of Velcro ones...

New life business plan.

Start up a small drop-ship company, based in my den.  Await an announcement for bidding for the never ending supply of patches & badges from the Government of Canada, valued at $750,000.

Drop-ship patches & badges to said customer.  Keep profit.  Retire without financial worry.


This is a lesson for all of us that we're all in the wrong line of work, more than anything  :cheers: :prancing:

Ok then 

to setup dropship company:


Legals - $5,000.00

Gov certs $150,000.0+++

Ottawa based "consultant" to navigate PWGSC $250,000.00

Bid response $25,000.00+

Travel entertainment $15,000.00

Misc  $25,000.00

OK lets round it to $450,000.00 to get ready to bid...I am being very light on these figures.

But, seriously.  I have one faded but serviceable and two "good condition" old style shirts without all the new Velcro.  So do a lot of other people.  As with a  lot of other people, my clothing stores will not exchange my old pattern shirts for new pattern shirts because they still have some wear in them and the new shirts are in short supply in my size.  Perhaps spending $750K on more shirts should have come before new patches that many people cannot currently wear.
