|So I saw this recently posted on the NZDF website the Warrant Officer of the Defence Forces seems to have a special insignia. However I can't find any reference to it on the NZDF website. Would this badge be the same regardless of what branch the WO came from? https://www.facebook.com/NewZealandDefenceForce/photos/a.257919237578563.56825.166834123353742/899442063426274/?type=1&theater...|

|EUROPE - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA||New British Army Appointment||(19)|
|That would be interesting -- I guess you're picturing something essentially like the current badge but with the swords in saltire behind the Royal Crest...? That' the idea, which cold be easily produced in subdued and metal, that I could see the only individual holding a rank needing subdued. My first thought was for a bullion Royal Arms, your suggestion of the addition of the wreath would, would make it distinctive from the General Service Corps badge. However my own personal view is that a cap badge should not be a duplicate of the rank badge. This leaves the army badge, the design you described would be a symbol that's recognised by all to be that of the British Army. Since the Staff and GSC are officer only, using the Staff badge seems to be a contradiction, unless it's a case of plenty in stock and an easy cheap fix. One question, with an army slimed down thinner than a model on laxatives, do we really need more grades? I sure the post could be filled by the most senior WO1 as an appointment....|
