I don't recall seeing that, usually you did not wear previous company insignias, tee shirts or patches in your present company...unless, of course, you wanted them to be cut off. My collar brass went into my jewelry box, still there.
Its more of a thing that Bosses do , they wear the collar brass from the company they got promoted from .

Highly disagree, I don't think thats the case either, I don't know where you saw or think that, but no company would stand for it and I could absolutely say I never saw officers wearing previous company brass anywhere on their uniform or gear. #1 its tacky, #2 its disrespectful to your company. You wouldn't even wear an old company tee shirt in your new firehouse.

Brother , I saw it on 3 of the Officers helmets i worked with in my house.....I worked in South Queens ...one of the Lts was a FF from 175 , one was from 123 and the other one was from 120....they each had their collar pin on their helmets....Its where the guy came from , whats the big deal ? ..I saw it on a bunch of covering guys helmets also......and honestly , i could care less what tee shirt he has on , or what pin he has on his lid .....i just want him to do his job .

OK, ya got me...things change, wouldn't get away with that during my time. I saw a few times guys get the florian cross cut off if it was a previous FDNY company. Thanks.
