Chaplaincy Service

[Enlisted Ranks [Army Main] [Air Corps Main]

In the Irish Defence Forces, Chaplains do not wear an actual rank marking.   Since the mid 1990's a slider has been worn and variations of it are shown below.  Prior to the cloth slider series, a silver metal cross would be worn in some cases on the epaulette.


Air Corps - 1996 Air Corps - 2006



Naval Chaplain - Board Naval Chaplain - Slider

The Naval Chaplain for some reason does not have the Celtic cross type slider.  The two shown above were made by the tailor on the base.




Army Chaplain (Flat type) Army Chaplain (2006)

The flat type Chaplains badge was used with Velcro or sewn onto a piece of material that was made into a slider.
