(i ask for a friend lol)
He might. But if so chances are he will choose the army uniform, as the army special forces have their base at Air Station Aalborg.
BTW that's also where he qualified for his jumpwings.

You are welcome, Polyesco.

But I know you can a little bit of Danish, eh?

Information from the royal court about Frederik's event today:
Ny fælleskommando for specialstyrkerne - Kongehuset


ADDED:

I have just watched the TV news with live transmission from Frederik's event.
And Polyesco, Frederik looked very great wearing his uniform

It's the Frogman Corps and the Special Forces which are being merged. (If I understood it correctly)

Thanks, Roskilde.
That's correct, all the special units will come under one special command.
That will I presume also include the special long range reconnaissance patrols from the Home Guard and the Sirius Patrol as well as bodyguards.

The army special forces (Jægerkorpset) and the navy special forces, the Frogman Corps are not being merged. Instead they will share equipment, buy special equipment, train and share some training facillities with eachother. The aim of course being to save money.

I mentioned the bodyguards, because eventhough they belong the Military Intelligence Service (FET), directly under the Defence Command, the people serving as bodyguards very much come from the two special forces.
They protect the Defence Chief, but also VIP's, ambassadors and sometimes embassies abroad. But also in more unsafe areas, members of the DRF. The FET agents usually being a lot heavier armed and much more aggressive than the police officers from PET.

--------------

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #26, 2015.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Frederik recently attended the school olympics in Copenhagen. And here he started the two kilometer race. - But old (military) habits die hard I see from a picture in the article. Frederik held the starter gun in a standard two hand stance, rather than with one hand as most would naturally do.
The winner of the race, thirteen year old Japhet Bifulu Bamba, who ran in 6 minutes 44 seconds, thus setting a new record, was congartulated by Frederik.

It's not only certain members of this forum... who are crazy about Frederik. The girls milled around him to get a high five from Frederik as well as countless selfies.
Frederik talked about how much sports means to him and expressed his delight that his fondness of sports also has rubed off on at least his two oldest chidlren: "I don't have to kick them out of bed during weekend. They are happy to get out themselves".
Frederik mentions in another article that Christian now attends callistenics.

yes he is
"The Crown Prince was drawn in one of the military's finest uniforms, as frømands- and jægerkorpsene got joint management"
couldn't agree more
-that uniform fits like a glove on Frederik, I wouldn't mind if they went back to the old days and had the crown prince wear his uniform everyday.

Thank you, Polyesco.

Yes, the navy full dress uniform your Frederik is wearing is indeed stylish.
I see he brought along two of his mother's adjutants, one from the army and one from the navy.

The word "flot" is often a problem to translate. I know from experience!
But beautiful? That one is new! Neat, handsome, nice or good looking are better general translations for that word.

Now back to the serious...
Our Crown Prince inspected the troops and looked much interested on from the first parquet when the command SOKOM was handed over to the new commander, Major General Jørgen Høll, by the Defense Chief, General Peter Bartram.

The special interest may be related to the Crown Prince himself took part of his military training with the Frogman Corps where he completed the very tough training under the nickname Pingo.

Frederik served in the maritime elite unit in 1995 and it has never been a secret that he has a penchant for the Navy - just like his grandfather King Frederik also had.

Yes, he looks wonderful in his Naval Uniform. Okay, drooling over! It must be great to have a qualified member of a specialist military Naval group as Crown Prince.

Now the question; Is the badge on his right breast his Frogman insignia?

That's an interesting question, Marg.

They are air/pilotwings of some sort, but I can't tell without a close up.
They are not jumpwings though. Frederik usually wear the freefall jumpwings, but perhaps there is something he isn't telling us?

The Frogman Corps insignia looks like this: http://militarybadgecollection.com/w...20type%202.JPG
http://militarybadgecollection.com/w...20x%2090mm.JPG
The army special forces insignia looks like this and this one is worn on the beret: http://militarybadgecollection.com/w...gerkorpset.JPG

So can someone supply a close up of Frederik?

Notice the seamen with the red helmets. They are aspirants for the Frogman Corps. They no doubt appreciate this parade as they are allowed the luxury of standing still for an extended period.
Unless ordered so or unless the service requires it, they are not allowed to stand still or walk outside their barrack. All movement is on the run and if say waiting outside the mess they must do double-time on the spot.
After having completed 25 push-ups (and that happens often!) they must always thank their instructor for giving them this extra opportunity to strengthen their weak bodies.
As such the standard 25 push-ups are in the Frogman Corps referred to as "rewards".

Not so in the army special forces, they can be more psychologically mean towards their aspirants. Sometimes when an aspirant has screwed up the instructor tell the aspirant to meter out the punishment himself. With the aspirant knowing the instructor assess him on how he reacts, but not in which way!
Or they order all the aspirants to line up at the edge of a fire basin with ice-cold water, and tell them: "Those who believe they didn't do well enough, take one step forward".

It's an aviator badge or pilot wings if you like, of that I'm certain.
I.e. Frederik is a qualified pilot with some sort of addition, presumably referring to what kind of aircraft it is.

It's the bottom part of the wings that puzzle me, I've never seen that before.
The bottom part "hanging" beneath the wings is the key.

I wonder if he is qualifying as a drone operator. That's a new branch and they could very well have a new badge, or rather a variant of the standard aviator badge.

I had a PM exchange with PM and AFAIR Frederik qualified for basic pilot training when he was young, right?

I´ve looked here (https://www.arma-dania.dk/public/tim...hp?pagesize=-1) but perhaps my eyes are tired, ´cause I can´t see the badge...

Or perhaps we can seek help here: Gradstegn og mærker i Søværnet

Thanks, FasterB.

To be certain I checked all 77 "uddannelsestegn" and there is no doubt is is a pilot/aviator wing he is wearing.
But this specific variant is not listed.

The first thing that crossed my mind was that Frederik had taken a crash course in the new Blackhawks to be delivered to the navy shortly. But Frederik (IIRC) only took a basic flying course in a fixed wing aircraft and a helicopter, let alone a helicopter as advanced as a Blackhawk, is way out of Frederik's league. So are the Fennec and EH101.
So that leaves the drones as a plausible option IMO.

Se billederne: Kronprins Frederik viste uniformen frem - Billeder på Avisen.dk

While looking at the badge from different angles, in the link supplied y FasterB, I read the sidebar in which stated:

Quote:
here was celebration today at Aalborg Air Base, where the new unified command for frogmen and commandos were selected. The new joint entity will be called Special operations command. The management of the new command, which is placed at Aalborg Air Base. Crown Prince Frederik was present at the celebrations. He has served in both the Army, Air Force and Navy, and he is an officer of all forces.
So, if the Frogmen and Commandos are now joined, could this be the new badge?

No, see the general behind Frederik in this picture. The man with maroon beret: http://imageservice.nordjyske.dk/ima...&bgcolor=black
He is the commander of the joint special forces command and he is wearing the badge of that command on his beret. Where it is always placed.

Skill badges are placed on the right side of the chest in DK. Had say Frederik attended a commando course (akin to the American Ranger Course), he might have worn such a skill badge on his chest. But Frederik is a Frogman in his own right and is entitled to wear the beret of that unit, complete with the Frogman badge on his beret.

So what Frederik is wearing on his right chest are skills acquired within the military but not to a specific unit. Hence why he used to wear the jumpwings.

Look at this very HQ pic of Joachim: https://app.box.com/s/c0tpla3x8oz270x6j9phzlyaanv0abu3
Above his right breast pocket are his static line jumpwings.
On the pockets are five skill badges.
And the H, referring to Prinsens Livregiment (The Prince's Own Life Regiment) that has been amalgamated into Jutland Dragoons to which Joachim belongs now. Because that was the oldest regiment - and the the oldest Danish regiment at all.

Here is a picture of Frederik: https://app.box.com/s/v1kybo37zvvk2k3ab486stcmzmgg1vr0
Here wearing the free fall jumpwings.
(In the navy you don't wear army skill badges.
And in the navy it is expected that your skills comes with your rank and experience, so no need to show off...).

https://app.box.com/s/huheiurqmo6quw2b72h90zx6cod9gac7
Frederik in the air force full dress uniform.
Here he is wearing the air force wings over his breast pocket, but his pilot wings on his right sleeve.
- And these wings are not entirely identical to the wings worn a few days ago.
So the conclusion as I interpret it, is that he has acquired some sort of aviator skill recently.

I think I have it!

I noticed another naval officer standing among the staff officers in the background. He has an identical badge on his chest as Frederik.
And having had a closer look at badge of Air Station Aalborg, what he and Frederik could very well wear is the metal unit wings of Air Station Aalborg HQ.

The officer because he is attached to the air station from the navy.
Frederik because he is showing respect for the host, Air Station Aalborg.

So if I'm right in my revised conclusion, these are not pilot wings but parade-HQ-wings.

Why can't the navy do like the army? Keep it simple. It's all that sea-air you know, affects the brain.

Still need a close-up to be sure though.

I sent a query to the Royal House about HRH CP Frederik's wings badge and this is the response that I received!


Quote:
The badge worn by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik is from the Danish Navy Frogman Corps (eqv. SEALs). It is the Corps’ wings.

Kind regards,
