    A friend of mine in Phoenix, who isn't a 501st member, decided to help the cause using one of my application pictures.

    Grand Admiral here. I probably get "who are you," "which movie are you in," and "will you take a picture for us" most often. Occasionally someone will call me director. I've also been called "like Thrawn," which was amusing and essentially accurate, and "Mrs. Thrawn" which I'll gladly accept. I have been thanked for my service and asked for directions multiple times. Once, someone commented on a picture of me seated in the emperor's throne, flanked by two death troopers, with "Are you in the Air Force, or is that a cosplay?" Thinking the death troopers would make my sarcasm kind of obvious, I replied "Space Force." The only response to that was "cool."

    Police officer is the more common one, particularly since Victoria Police changed their uniform to a very dark NYPD style - I wear a staff Officer costume.

    Have been confused for a security guard at a Lego show, and someone wearing a period chauffeur costume at a car show (never get separated from the rest of your troopers lol).

    Naturally I’ve had the ever unsavoury “Nazi”. Always an unpleasant association.

    I agree Staff Officer should be in the name somewhere.  Beyond that, I don't have much of a preference.

    I figured the name should incorporate "Staff Officer" to honor the IOC and the naming convention that has been in place for over 15 years.

    Never been called any names yet, don’t want too. I was at a Troop event last year in Victoria Australia at Children’s Christmas Party, arrived in style as Krennic and nobody knew who I was. Oh dear 
    Thought everyone has seen Rogue One

    The visual guide refers to Lt Putna as a “librarian-turned-security-officer”, so why not just called the black uniformed R1/Solo CRL “Security Officer (R1/Solo)”? It helps makes a clear delineation between the OT and the Anthology uniforms.

    Your concern would be absolutely valid, but fortunately, that's not the way we've planned this to work.  We're not simply "renaming" the old CRL, while simultaneously making these significant changes.

    Instead, previously-approved members will still have the designation of "Staff Officer (Black)".  No change.  That designation will simply no longer be available for new approvals (once the generous grace period ends).
     
    New approvals will have the option of ANH Staff Officer (if that's the costume they have), or this new one, whatever it's ultimately named.

    Wow, that's a lot of variations but then again there were quite a few manufacturers as well!

    I have a German green woolen one dating from 1944 and a Swedish black one from a later period but exactly the same style, would love to wear my black one over the staff officer but its too hot!

    Yeah, ignore that brainfart. The German's had about 13 variants of greatcoat, excluding the motorcyclist version (which was rubberised).

    Yes, those hats look very tall! As to those trenchcoats they are very similar in design but possibly of a lighter material as the German ones were leather no?

    In the film only the standard collar was seen, If I recall thats why the CRL only includes it.

    Good call on the collar difference.  Were they all like that?  I would assume so, but When I do that I usually end up wrong. haha
     
    How would you like to word the collar change?

    Brilliant find though. Much prefer the trenchie to the Batman cape CRL would need to call out the different colour and material of the black collar.

    I get it for sure. There have been CRLs that I have found to be overly pedantic in my opinion. But I had to deny people because of them. *Cough!* Biker Scout! *Cough!*

    That’s a good question! Let me have a try...
    I’ve added the tile size to suit R1/Solo also. Sorry I don’t know inch fractions!
    I feel leaving a range for the tile spacing at L1 allows a little freedom between makers, self-builders etc. 
    Just my thoughts on this of course. 
    (Sorry about formatting. I’m at work and using my iPad)

    Yes but its more than just that, the present staff officer CRL will be replaced with this new one. Obviously there will be a period of time before it happens to give people time to finish costumes they are working on.
