Buttons on new SD

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What's the story with buttons on the lower pockets of the new SD tunic?
    Is it an Orrifices/WOs privilege?

    Asking purely because I thought they were supposed to be the same across the board.
     
  2. Could be a Regimental thing, I don't have buttons on the lower pockets of my horrible, cheap, nasty FAD SD.

    Mind you, I am in a horrible, cheap, nasty Corps ;)
     
  3. Thanks for that, if regimental in this case I'm asking about the Rifles.
     
  4. No reference to it there at all and the only buttoned pockets on show are on an officer's old no.2's.

    Ahh... It's only from one photo so probably a lash-up or someone pushing their luck.
     
  5. RLC?
     
  6. This is the item in question, from the Bay of E of course.
     
  7. Wrong rank badges. RGJ had gold edges. RIFLES have silver.
     
  8. Hmm. This was purchased by someone I know yesterday...

    I did warn him.
