Jump to: navigation, search

The Civilian Pin is awarded to non-uniformed civilians who have passed through a rigorous set of qualifications which accredit them as one of two levels; the ‘Accredited Staff Member Pin’ or ‘ASM’ and ‘Chartered Staff Member Pin’ or ‘CSM’.

Summary

The ‘Civilian Pin’ is non-uniformed civilian award that is recognized on par with the current military Space Warfare Pin, (“SWP”) and as such is only option for members of the Diplomatic Corps or the Special Intelligence Service in the Space Warfare Challenge for the Black Sphinx Cup.

The Civilian Pin award is offered as a means of encouraging non-uniformed civilians to enter into the Black Sphinx Cup and aid their chapter by taking civilian themed courses and will permit the wearing of the relevant Civilian Pin – as appropriate to the rank they currently hold in either the Diplomatic Corps or the Crown Intelligence Service.

The Civilian Pin has to distinct levels of achievement, the Accredited Staff Member civilian ranks C1 – C11 (Junior / Senior Civil Servant) and the Chartered Staff Member civilian ranks C12 and above (Junior Minister / Minister).

Historical Background: Black Sphinx Cup

The Black Sphinx Cup is an important event to many Chapters in the fleet, and everyone is encouraged to take part. Historically, members of the Diplomatic or Intelligence Service were permitted to complete the courses and be awarded the Space Warfare Pin, they were not permitted to wear the SWP award.

As the non-uniformed branches have grown in numbers, it was felt that the time was right to offer an alternative which would be just as challenging, and aimed at broadening our members knowledge and be focused on the civilian courses offered by the Landing University and the Mannheim University.
