    Default Help needed to ID This Armband

    I bought this arm band some time ago and for the life of me, can't remember what the seller said it was for. It's 3 1/2" wide by 17" long. Anyone know what the SDO signifies? Senior Duty Officer? Squadron Duty Officer?

    Staff duty officer.. Usually an nco that is put in charge while in absence of an officer. Like inspecting guard duty personell.. Smaller responsibilities.

It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Hi, I would suggest that your armlet is British and judging from the colours, red on black, the brass poppers and the style of the lettering, that is for wear by a senior RAF officer, usually in the rank of Squadron Leader whils acting a "Station Duty Officer" or on some units a "Senior Duty Officer"?? Both terms are used. For Warrant and Junior Officers, the armlet bears the initials "OO" (Orderly Officer.
