Question  IMC patch
Greetings,
Admin’ please move this if you think it could do better in another thread.
I have a request for IMC trained Marshals.
I have just renewed my IMC and have a new green patch.  However I already have a green one a gold one and a black one.
My request for a swap to IOMTTMA admin’ was turned down as “They are issued in sequence”, I’ll say no more on that and have asked them what other colour patches have been used (no reply as yet).
So assuming other colours have been used, does anyone want to swap my new green patch for a colour I don’t already have?
I’m in Quarry Bank in the West Midlands if a hand over is wanted nearby or it can be done by post.
Reply on here or send me a PM...............Thanks
Cheers
Lance
PS is there a dedicated IOMTTMA forum, I can’t find one?

RE: IMC patch
I am not sure but thought that as you have to renew your IMC every three years that the colour was to help identify that you were up to date with your training requirements, but am not 100% on that, just what I understood it to be, can't remember what colours mine are without getting them out of hiding,

RE: IMC patch
Hi Eddy,
You are correct, but they only use four colours, so why have I had two green ones and never had a blue one, I've retrained every three years?. It don't compute. They keep a record of when re-training is required and inform you anyway.
Marshals don't have to be IMC trained to marshal.

Have a search and send me a blue patch please.

I did have an experience when I was moved one year, it went something like this.....I arrived at a post manned by two ladies and a young man. After greetings he said "as you were here last you are on tea making duties" I didn't mind but then one of the ladies, pointing to the IMC patch on my tabard said to the fella, "He's IMC trained, he out ranks you, you're still the tea wallah" It was all taken in good humour and as I was asked to move yet again It didn't matter.
BTW at my regular post the owner serves us regularly with tea and biscuits..........Bostin.

No not Costa del Plenty, but borrowed by this Signora seen next to my mate.

Here on route to my post retirement ride destination to the south of Italy.

4,750miles in 23 days in temps up to 40C in the shade, bit over the top at the time for me, but very enjoyable.
