    "On qualification Marines of the SBS wear the branch badge on the left cuff of lovat green and blue uniform jackets, the letters SC over a wreath, Officers wear no branch designators. On qualification as an advanced parachutist, personnel are awarded the SBS variant of special forces parachute wings, worn on the shoulder of the right sleeve. Marines continue to wear the commandos green beret"

    This is all wrong. Even the website is wrong!


    N.B. I am currently a serving Royal Marine and have previously been attached to the SBS for 4 years.

    1. When men are badged they get rid of the 'Globe and Laurel' badge and swap it with the SBS badge ( i cant post links to what they look like as lm a new member).

    2. The para wings are that of a non SF para trained lad. UKSF have different badges for their wings and SAS and SBS badges are different from each other.

    3. The RM's on the sides are replaced with SBS ones

    And lastely the SC badge does not get worn on the lovatts at all regardless of what specialisation you are. Indeed the only badges worn on lovatts are para wings, rank and Kings Badge (if the indiviaul was awarded it as its worn on ever service dress throughout their career)

    However, the SC badge will be put onto a RM's blues but they are never worn once an individual is badged, they always wear their lovatts for everyhing.

    Nice uniform. I have the same.
    You have belt in wrong place. Your belt isn't for trousers but for Nr5 Lovatt Jacket.
    For trousers RM used stable belts.
