Sailor Vee, that is from RAF regs and makes no difference twixt the sexes or whether ATC. Remember when I was in the ATC stripes were a lot higher than hers, not that I got any as was the school squadron and I wasn't well liked by the teachers!!!
Here y'all go, the relevant ATC reg

Badges of rank are to be worn centrally on the outer face of both uniform sleeves, with the lowest point of the chevrons located 24cm from the shoulder seam.
Sun is just coming up. Should be a reasonably sunny day, after the rain and electric storms of yesterday.
Absolutely cream crackered last night, but at least son's apartment is now empty and ready for return to landlady. Looking at a new apartment for him this afternoon, after moving his doctors and a visit to his psychiatrist this morning.
Said psychiatrist will be getting a piece of my mind, as son has been drug free for a week now and is a much better and reasoned person for it. Our lawyer has noticed this as well.
Some of those anti-psychotic drugs just frazzle the mind. My mother was put on them to try and control post shingles neuralgia. She'd only taken two when I had to go and rescue her. Threw the lot down the loo. Awful things.
Good to hear of some improvement. A trip to the Buffet Bar will perk the lad up.
Good morning all. Bright and sunny here though cold.
I to had lack of sleep. Problem is 600mg of Ibuprofen kills the pain for about 6 hours, so have 3 hours mid afternoon with pain and then take second dose. Daren't take too many so none at night however that means pain and little sleep. Hope x ray finds something if not will have to wait for scan and no idea when that is.
Morning all, nice n'sunny here which means the temperature is a little crisp, but still jacket weather only, no coat yet!
Busy as we've had German and French GDP (both okay, but that's yer high tide mark folks, downhill from now on) and loads of CEE GDPs, along with acronymphomania.
laser - you're like me! I desperately want them to go 'Ah! That's not right, we must fix it immediately' rather than 'Eerrrmmm, why not come back in half a year's time?'
Woke up to go the loo at about 0200 today, got up, had a wibbly wobbly (shortage of breath, light-headness, loss of balance) grabbed out and bought the wife's clothes rack thingy crashing to the ground. It is a write-off although yours truly wasn't.
Alarm bells now ringing and having a meet with OH soon.
Angels, are you on any inhalers? I was orginally diagnosed with COPD, but as it turns out having a new Dr and pratice nurse, is actually asthma. Now inhale twice a day on Clenil and a lot better. Know when you need the loo it's normally urgent but try sitting up for 2-3mins before standing.
Won't give up on work even if I have to crawl, US companies sick pay is minimal as I have said before.
My wibbly-wobblies occur when the heart beats erratically (multiple ectopics) and not enough blood gets to my brain. The breathjless is the lungs trying to make up for the lack of oxygen by breathing quicker.
Ibbie - anti-psychotic drugs can be well dodgy as I think you're finding out. Get all the advice you can.
Been away from informed comment for a while --Magnus av rainfall on my patch should be 24--26 inches PA so far this year a bit over 14 so to get the average we will prob get the lot over two days and all get drowned . also one day in 84 or 85 (when a NSW air ambulance pilot I took a chap ,who had taken a fall at the telescope. Pretty badly hurt , and we took him from Coona to Canberra . Were you there then ? 41 c today and not even summer yet. GG we had a 303 shoot at Box Ridge on sat --an annual Armistice day shoot where only WW1 OR WW2 rifles can be used . I won the 100 mtr standing rapid and got bum very severely kicked on the next two ranges. That chap from America is coming to Australia to morrow ,he will be here for 28 hours . the tv coverage will be on from 0100 (Z) cant be here as I have to wash my two working dogs.
bob johns, I was at the UK Schmidt telescope from 82 to late 84, but don't recall the accident. There was some telescope construction going on (the 2.3m Advanced Technology Telescope), so it may have been associated with that.
Snippet: I met Bob Hawke when he was at the official opening of the ATT.
