Badges & Insignia

The cap badge of the Raiding Support Regiment depicts a winged gauntlet drawing a hand from a castellated structure. The castellated structure signifies occupied countries, the small hand signifies the occupants of those countries and the winged gauntlet is of course the Raiding Support Regiment bringing relief to the inhabitants.

When the regiment was first formed, this badge was worn on a rather distinctive chocolate coloured beret. However, as the war progressed, chocolate coloured berets were in short supply and so this was later changed to the same beige colour that was worn by the SAS, LRDG etc.

The motto of the unit which surrounds the cap badge is a Bible quotation, “Quit You Like Men”.

As part of Raiding Forces, the RSR wore the Raiding Forces para wing once they were para trained.
