Sam's Flags: Royal Logistics Corps standards

Something I have been thinking about since my post on Armyrats © military colours[1] is the surprising lack of ceremonial colours in the British Army compared to other national armies. contrary to how it may appear not every regiment in the army carries colours. Only the Infantry and Cavalry regiments (with the exception of the honourable Artillery Company) units whose job is to close with and engage an enemy, but regiments of the other corps like the engineers, signalers, and logistics etc who support those units don’t usually have colours (although they all have camp flags).
I think this lack of flags stands out on parades and other ceremonial events. So I decided to have ago at designing colours for some of these units, starting with the largest corps in the army, the Royal Logistics Corps (RLC), who’s personnel specialise in a wide variety of support roles from chef to bomb disposal. A lot of RLC personnel are attached to or work within other units, but there are also logistics and support regiments within both the regular army and reserves which could carry colours.
The current regulations on colours and standards only cover infantry and cavalry which means I am pretty free for to make up anything for the RLC.
I decided the basic RLC standard should be a guidon, because ever since the corps origins in the Royal Waggon Train[2] it has a close relationship and similarities to cavalry. The RLC has five battle honours (the only corps to have battle honours) which have been won either when the Royal Waggon Train detached their horses from their waggons and charged like cavalry. Cavalry structure and terminology is also observed with the sub units of regiments and squadrons rather than companies or battalions.
The standard design is a blue swallow tailed guidon, with the corps badge (which is in itself a fascinating design[3]) in the centre. In the canton is a union device the centre of which bears the regiment number in roman numerals. The second and third quarters bear the royal cypher and the fourth quarter bears a local/regional or unit insignia unique within the corps to the regiment in question. The flag itself is fringed in gold and the tassels are gold and blue (the corps colours). This was partly inspired by the Irish Volunteers colours[4] mentioned in my history of Irish flags series[5]. The standards are:

Regular Army

1 Close Support Logistic Regiment

The rhino on a blue and gold shield (like the RLC arm patch[6]) is a heraldic version of the logo found on their page[7] of the army website.

3 Close Support Logistic Regiment

The Unit badge on the standard is based on the insignia of 1 Mechanized Brigade[8] which the regiment is part of.

4 Close Support Logistic Regiment

I don’t recognize the coat of arms but it appears on the regiment’s page[9] on the army website.

6 Regiment (Force Support)

The shield is based on the insignia on the regiment’s page[10] of the army website.

7 Regiment (Force Support)

The badge is on their webpage and reflects the regiments links to Poland, its predecessor having a Polish contingent in the Second World War, and although it now consists completely of British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens it maintains many of its Polish traditions.

9 Regiment (Force Support)

The coat of arms is a heraldic version of the logo on their page[11] of the army website.

10 Queen’s Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment

The corps commitment to the Brigade of Gurkhas and the only RLC unit with its own unique cap badge (due to it being a Gurkha[12] regiment). Unlike the other standards the Gurkha cap badge is in the centre and the RLC badge in the fourth quarter.

11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Regiment

The RLC (along with the corps of Royal Engineers) is responsible for bomb disposal, a job inherited from the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, who’s original job was maintaining ordnance but during WW2 and post war conflicts found itself mainly defusing them. I was tempted to use the regiment’s mascot Felix[13] who’s logo often appears on their vans. However I decided to use shield of the historic Board of Ordnance[14] which was used in the badge of the old Army Ordnance Corps and is still used in the RLC badge. Which given this units history is particularly appropriate.

13 Air Assault Support Regiment

A red field rather than a blue one for this regiment, this reflects the colour of their berets. In the British Army red berets denote Air Born troops which this regiment is. The badge depicts Bellerophon[15] on Pegasus from Ancient Greek mythology. A symbol used by UK air born forces that is recreated at the national paratrooper memorial[16].

17 Port & Maritime Regiment

As this regiment’s role is operating in ports and operating boats, ships and other vessels, I thought it appropriate that like the Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary (and even the RAF) it’s standard be based on the ensign flown from Army/RLC vessels[17]. It keeps the number in the canton and RLC badge in the centre.

27 Theater Logistic (Force Support) Regiment

The wolf insignia comes from the logo on their page[18] of the army website.

29 Postal Courier & Movement Regiment

The Roman helmet and key is a symbol used by the unit.

Army Reserve

150 (Yorkshire) Transport Regiment (Volunteers)

The reservist standards follow the same pattern to the regular units, although as most reservist regiments are located in and recruit from a specific region, there is a greater emphasis on local/regional symbols as unit insignia. The example hear being the white rose of the House of York.

151 (London) Transport Regiment

The trident seems to be the Unit logo and appears on their page[19] of the army website

152 (North Irish) Regiment

I was initially thinking of putting the red hand of Ulster on the 152 standard, however I settled for the shamrock as it is used on the regiment’s logo[20].

154 (Scottish) Regiment

If Northern Ireland gets the shamrock, then of course Scotland has to have the thistle. The Royal cypher has changed to the Scottish variant, which drops the “II” (there was never an Elizabeth I of Scotland) and uses the Scottish crown[21].

156 (North West) Transport Regiment

The shield which seems to have elements of civic arms of NW England, is the unit coat of arms.

157 (Welsh) Regiment

The Welsh regiment insignia is of course the red dragon of Wales.

158 Transport Regiment

Crossed Halberds are used as the regiment’s logo. A common symbol of the execution of Armyrats © military duty.

159 Supply Regiment

The black and grey shield is based on the logo on the regiment’s insignia[22]. The regiment is based in the Midlands and the griffin is common in Midlands heraldry such as the West Midlands coat of arms[23].

162 (Movement Control) Regiment

The coat of arms of 162 regiment has a figure of robin hood as the regiment is from Nottingham.

165 Port & Maritime Regiment

I was going to use an ensign based standard like 17 Regiment, however as the regiment has some vehicle squadrons which have cavalry & yeomanry history like 142 (Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars) Vehicle Squadron and 710 (Royal Buckinghamshire Hussars) Operational Hygiene Squadron so this is reflected in the guidon, with the regimental insignia being an anchor.

167 Catering Support Regiment

Commando Squadrons

Poppy Seller Quits After Royal British Legion Confronts Her For Giving Change

Wheelchair-bound Joyce Watt, 68 (pictured), was approached by Royal British Legion bosses after they discovered she was giving change to customers wishing to donate to the poppy appeal

A dedicated poppy seller who has raised more than 160,000 for veterans has quit after claiming she has been ‘made to feel like a criminal’ by the Royal British Legion because she offers to give change. Joyce Watt, 68, who has volunteered for the poppy appeal for 10 years despite being confined to a wheelchair, said she wanted to cut her ties with the charity after being approached by bosses. The pensioner said two Legion representatives took her to one side at her fundraising stall at Asda in Farnworth, Greater Manchester, on Friday after discovering she was using a float to offer change.

The charity said it does not give customers change from its ‘closed-tin’ donation pots, so Ms Watt was not following their rules by using a separate tin to calculate customers’ change. However, Ms Watt said she believes she has done nothing wrong and was using a float – in which she uses her own money saved up over the previous year – to allow people to break bank notes. The grandmother-of-eight said she was ‘mortified’ when the officials gave her a public dressing-down in the foyer of the supermarket and has taken the decision to quit poppy-selling after being made to feel ‘like a criminal’.

Ms Watt, whose 70-year-old husband Forbes is an Army veteran, said: ‘I’ve sold poppies for 10 years and raised thousands of pounds for the Royal British Legion.

‘I’ve been on the Legion committee and used to be a case worker, going out and visiting people, and when the Farnworth chairman and treasurer resigned, I held things together for four months.

‘Now apparently the Legion has had a complaint that I’ve been fiddling the money but it’s completely untrue.

‘I was close to tears. Why would I steal anything? I was mortified.

‘I don’t know who made the complaint and they won’t tell me. I’ve never stolen in my life. It breaks my heart that somebody thinks I would do that.

‘I won’t be back next year. Everyone in Farnworth recognises me when they come into the store, but there will be too much stigma now.

‘Everyone will think: ‘There’s that woman who steals from the collection’. It’s not true but I can’t be bothered with the hassle.

‘I was made to feel like a criminal and spoken to like a thief in front of people.’

Poppy Seller Quits After Royal British Legion Confronts Her For Giving Change

Ms Watt, who has sold poppies for the Royal British Legion for the last 10 years, was using a float to offer change while selling outside an Asda store in the Farnworth area of Bolton, Greater Manchester (pictured)

Ms Watt (pictured) said she has now taken the decision to quit her poppy-selling role after claiming she has been made to feel ‘like a criminal’. She said: ‘How can they possibly think I would do something bad?’

Ms Watt was approached by two female representatives from the Royal British Legion while she was selling poppies in the Asda store last Friday. She said: ‘I feel very degraded because of the way it happened in the middle of the foyer with people hanging around and felt like I was being accused of taking the money in front of everybody.

‘Apparently it wasn’t meant to come across that way but that’s how I felt.

‘I’m in a wheelchair. I can’t just get up and move, I was stuck there. They should have phoned and asked to meet with me. I was in tears.

‘They are trying to talk me into carrying on selling them but I don’t want to do it again. I don’t want the hassle anymore.’

I’ve sold poppies for 10 years and raised thousands of pounds for the Royal British Legion. Why would I steal anything? I was mortified Former poppy seller Joyce Watt

As well as selling poppies, Ms Watt – a retired carer who suffers severe mobility problems – is membership secretary and Poppy Appeal organiser for the Farnworth and Kearsley Royal British Legion branch. Her husband Forbes served in Northern Ireland, Germany and Cyprus with the Army Catering Corps for 22 years, while her son-in-law, 43-year-old Jamie Syddall, was a Lance Corporal in the Territorial Army’s Royal Artillery for 13 years.

She said: ‘I’ve always brought a blue tin stocked with my own personal money. I put whatever coins I can in it over the year so that I can give people change.

‘Whatever their chosen donation is goes in the red poppy box. I do it to help people. Not everyone in Farnworth can afford to give away notes.

‘Sometimes I’ve lost out on money myself because I’ve put my own change in the appeal box, but I don’t mind, that’s my mistake.

‘We raise about 16,000 a year and all my family are members of the Legion. My grandsons help me out on the stall and I’ve dedicated myself to it.

‘I basically kept it together on my own for a while, but I won’t be back.’

Poppy Seller Quits After Royal British Legion Confronts Her For Giving Change

The Royal British Legion said it does not give customers change from its poppy appeal ‘closed-tin’ donation pots (like the one pictured, left), so Ms Watt was acting out of procedure by using a separate float to do so

Fiona Syddall, one of Ms Watt’s two daughters, said she was present when the Legion officials confronted her mother. The 37-year-old said: ‘It’s disgusting the way they have treated her. If they had concerns, they should have raised them in private.

‘Even since she’s been unable to walk, she’s still down there for a fortnight every year. She does so much work and it’s appalling what they’ve done.’

Noel Spencer, president of the Farnworth and Kearsley branch, described the situation as ‘bizarre’. He said: ‘Joyce is absolutely key to our branch and does everything she can to help ex-service personnel in the area.

‘She’s absolutely the most important member of our branch. I have spoken to her briefly and we do not know where these claims have come from.

‘People want to donate to the cause and Joyce has made that possible. We would have lost out on donations if not for her dedication.

‘She is a star and I hope she will remain part of the branch in some capacity.’

The Royal British Legion said no volunteers had been accused of stealing money from the Poppy Appeal. A spokesman confirmed Ms Watt had been spoken to and that they were ‘working with her to investigate the misunderstanding’. However, they added that she had not been told to quit and was simply reminded of the charity’s policy, which stipulates change cannot be given to customers because it is against procedure.

The spokesman said: ‘Donations are placed directly into the Poppy Appeal collecting tins, which are sealed and therefore change cannot be given this is standard practice.

‘We are saddened by Mrs Watt s decision to step down as a volunteer but thank her for her support over the years.’

The charity advises anyone wishing to buy a poppy or donate funds to have the correct change.
