ABN 30/11: UNIFORM TO WORK DAY 2011
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Serial No: Sourced: 30/11 AM&C

Date: Released By: 25/05/2011 AM&C
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. The annual Reserves Uniform to Work Day (UWD) will take place on Wed 22 Jun 11, four days prior to Armed Forces Day (AFD) on Sat 25 Jun 11. This is an important opportunity to raise the profile of those who serve in the Reserves.
TARGET AUDIENCE

2. All TA personnel and Regular units employing TA personnel.

KEY POINTS

• The intent of UWD is to encourage TA officers and soldiers to arrange with employers to go to work at their civilian jobs in uniform for the day.
• TA soldiers need the support of their employer. Personnel must also ensure that their
Chain of Command is informed of their intention to participate in UWD.

• Those Regular personnel who do not usually wear their uniform to work are also encouraged to do so.

BACKGROUND

3. Following the success of the last 3 years, UWD has become an annual event for the Reserve Forces and part of the build-up week to AFD. It is principally a vehicle to generate media effect, emphasising the unique nature of Reserve soldiers.

4. The aim of UWD is to raise the profile of the TA ‘Among Us in Society’, in order to promote the principal AFD messages and to encourage public affirmation, recognition and understanding. It will also remind the public that the TA is ‘among us’ in society, emphasising the links between the civilian workplace and the Army in line with other Community Engagement activities.

5. The event will emphasise that the TA is good for individuals, employers and communities; TA personnel gain leadership skills and specialist expertise, which serve them well in their civilian jobs.

6. At a time when 8% of soldiers serving in Afghanistan are members of the Reserve Forces, UWD is a chance to support those currently serving on operations by drawing attention to the fact that they have come from jobs in the civilian workplace.

This TA soldier who spent nine months thrashing himself for HERRICK 15 would like the support of LAND and not be informed, the day before brown envelopes where issued, that he'd not be going despite being told he would.

Please tell me that you ******* work shy abortions dont actually rock up to work in rig for the day?

Arent you a bit weighed down already with H4H and regimental bracelets, anodised medal badges and key rings, veterans pins and pussers watch?

I'm sure most people in work already know your a 'soldier' by the ubiquitous Telic phots that most stabs plaster all over their desk..

Actually, to my great shame, there is a guy who does exactly that at work with me. Despite the fact the furthest east he has ever been is Malta. He also hints about when he was with "Them", tells war stories with multiple enemy casualties and keeps suggesting to me that if I want to go back in, he can get me a good posting. He has been out longer than I have. He was in for less time than I was and I doubt he made lance jack.

They are all nuts. Was stood behind one in Subway last week, great big **** off MTP daysac on with all sorts sticking out of it, a 'Fitter Section' on tour type Telic t shirt and a pair of jeans that looked like he had worn them for a bet. Fat **** had double cheese on his footlong meatball and I'm sure he went a funny shade of puce when the bird said 'and what salad would you like?'

Not to mention the liberal use of naval slang garnered from internet fora.
