Talking Rest Home for Tired Name Badges

The Sunnyview Rest Home for Tired Name Badges has been completed and has started receiving its first residents. Situated on the Yorkshire coast it is a place of tranquility for badges whose comic novelty has ebbed with advancing years.
Whilst young and fresh they are a source of joy for all. Unfortunately, as age wearies them they cut an ever more pathetic figure in bars throughout the forces. We have all been guilty of raising a weak titter in order to avoid offence to both the Badge and its owner.
Now at last there is a place they can retire to, without stigma, in order to await the inevitable.
Removing these elderly citizens to a place of rest should allow younger blood to flourish.
The roll call of the first intake of residents was indeed distinguished and included:
Hugh Jardon
Hertz van Rental
Isaac Hunt
Albert O'Balsam
Mike Hunt
Major Lee Gwancker(and variants thereof)

If you meet a Badge that would benefit from the company of kindred spirits, please direct them to Sunnyview via the nearest bin or ash tray, and record their passing on this thread.

Thank you.

In my squadron we had a real Jerk, so we all got nametags made up with his name..Prior to some serious partying we'd put his nametags on and whenever anyone got in trouble it was his name sent to the commander....great fun!!!

Many years ago at a stn somewhere in Norfolk, where you could join the 10-ton club, one of the blunties in handbrake house assumed a 'St John' (pronounced Sinjen) in front of his surname when he was promoted. Shortly after, at a cocktail party where nametags were worn he noticed that many of his fellow officers also seemed to have acquired a 'St John' prefix. He rushed over to complain to the Stn Cdr who turned to reveal a nametag which proclaimed 'Joe St John Giblert' (name scrambled to protect identity).

Walter Wall-Totty is due retirement as is Mark Thyme.

But don't upset Richard Head - he's real.
