Non-commissioned officers and officers of the Rwanda Defence Force (RDF) have started placing rank insignia at the center of their chest while wearing combat dresses unlike the past where the insignia were placed on shoulders.

The changes went into effect from Monday 9th January 2023.

Despite the development, the rank insignia on office or ceremonial dress will remain on the shoulders.

This style is already adopted other countries including the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US)’s armies.

Military experts highlight that placing the rank insignia at the chest is better for concealment as the enemy can hardly identify the commander of troops during insecurity or fighting.

RDF did not make changes in insignia placement on office dress.
