Until we start wearing velcro rank on on the sleeves while in the field [emoji3]
Eagle Eye View said:Sadly the CA is not the only element switching patches very 5 years. From the brief we got, the RCAF is reverting back to the “only green” patches for the flight suits. The Div order should be release shortly. Here’s to another $40 of patches for the uniform.
Dimsum said:FFS, what's the reason this time? We take them off when we go somewhere even potentially bad. Do people not understand the point of velcro?

tree hugger said:The other day I saw a picture of navy recruits in CADPAT but instead of the Canadian Flag on the left shoulder, they had the Naval Ensign.
Is this a thing?
I'm navy, wear CADPAT and have the Canadian Flag on my shoulder. Is there a reg/policy I'm missing?
Don't think you see the mental picture - my confusion wasn't CADPAT vice NCDs - it was the face the pers in the image were CADPAT with naval ensign in lieu of the Canadian Flag.CountDC said:Maybe, depending on where you work and your job, this canforgen: http://vcds.mil.ca/apps/canforgens/default-eng.asp?id=198-09&type=canforgen
ACCORDINGLY, CF MEMBERS ENTITLED TO THE NAVAL DISTINCTIVE ENVIRONMENTAL UNIFORM (DEU) ARE HEREBY DIRECTED TO WEAR NAVAL COMBAT DRESS (NCD) IN LIEU OF CADPAT, WHERE THE CADPAT IS PERMITTED BY COMDS AND CO S AS THE DRESS OF THE DAY. EXCEPTIONS TO THIS CANFORGEN ARE PERMITTED FOR VALID OPERATIONAL REASONS ONLY, INCL EMPL IN ACTUAL FIELD OPS, FIELD TRG ACTIVITIES OR OTHER APPROVED TRG SITUATIONS
Working at an army unit in an office does not qualify as valid reason despite the attempts to have me wear cadpat.
PuckChaser said:Probably NAVRES BMQ? I've never seen the Ensign on CADPAT, only thought it was supposed to be on NCDs as one of the 18 things that say Navy so people don't forget.

sidemount said:Unless the pic is flipped, it doesnt look like the Canada flag is being replaced as it is worn on the left side...it looks like this is being worn in lieu of a brigade patch.
