New badge

Do you think they'll be allowed to wear it on their jumpers too?

The people with a dartboard marked out with postings destinations, and a slack handful of arrows, each with a name on it?

The Met Office has one, with a large number of iterations of title/ corporate image.

To the best of my fuddled recollection, in just 41 years of my service:

M.O. 10
Met. O. 10
Manning [whoops!]
Staffing
Personnel
Human Resources

and, for all I know now, another one or two.

Yes, yes, yes, langleybaston - but will you weather-guessers PLEASE sort out this wretched cold weather!

I'm not familiar with the Personnel Branch - but perhaps something which indicates provision of comfort, uplift and general support* for service personnel might be appropriate?

Actually, if they can come up with a 'brand identitty', then the best of luck to them!


*TIP - try a google image search for this!

Good suggestion Beags!
It could also include the musicians as I read it following your tip:

A badge for Scribblies?

Oh dear gods, whatever next, a blanket badge for Stackers?


I have a suggestion, how about a Penguin?

Do they still make them?

Perhaps a crossed pen and axe?

An axe is useful, how about 'closed for staff training' badge or a very small stable belt?

That'd cover off the diversity bit, with some sort of rainbow ribbon obviously....

Seriously though, where is this badge going to be displayed or worn?

If on uniform then everyone will want one (Sooties, plumbers, loggies, fairies, etc).

Then cost, what budget? I wonder how far up money tree is the sponsor?

BEagle ...

May I suggest that the 'article' you could also possibly allude to has the 'Cricket Box' mod (made by Litesome) ... As I suspect, as in the commercial world, most people feel they've been kicked in the nether regions whenever dealing with 'Human Remains' (sorry Human Resources).

And if so the Motto could be ... 'Truss Us'

This could be a contender graphic



But I refrain from suggesting a Motto ...

As a former scribbly, this proposal leaves me wholly underwhelmed

Brilliant ............. and there was me thinking it was 1st April.

As for the weather, I abdicated all responsibility not when I left the Met. Office, but when I joined.

Please leave the badges to those at the pointy end, and spend the money on something useful instead.

I always thought that the role of we scribblies was to do what we could to make the lives of drivers, geographical consultants and the like, as well as those of us in the supporting cast, as free as possible from unnecessary faff. To earn the Queen's shilling whilst doing so was reward in itself.
