Best Boy Medal
The SANA, Heritage, Remembrance Day, Energy Conservation and Civil Defence badges are souvenir badges and not BB Proficiency badges. Henceforth, they should not be worn on the Uniform.
Only the Founder’s Badge, Senior Proficiency Star and JP Gold Badge (in this descending order) are to be worn on the left arm.
The Long-Year Service badge, when awarded, will replace the 3-Year Service badge to be worn on the chevron, and should no longer be worn on the left arm. It is also no longer a special award.
The Best Boy medal may be worn only as part of the Full Uniform attire.
Wearing of Sashes/Collar Pin
All sashes worn at Company level to denote appointments such as CSM should not be worn at Brigade-level functions.
The Founder’s collar pin is a souvenir badge, not a Proficiency badge, and should not be worn on any BB uniform or BB Regulation blue Polo shirt.
